Shwe Shwe Colours

Shwe Shwe Colours from South Africa

Traditional designs, great new colours

The African Fabric Shop is the biggest importer - with the biggest choice - of Shwe Shwe fabric in the UK and Europe.

These great new colourways add a whole new spectrum of possibilities to traditional Shwe Shwe fabrics from South Africa.

Look for the genuine 'Three Cats' logo on the back - just like the original Shwe Shwe fabrics that were born in Manchester but are now 100% South African. The colour label for each fabric - i.e. purple, turquoise, etc. - refers to the base colour of the fabric before printing.

All fabrics are 100% cotton. Because these fabrics are starched in the factory - that's the tradition - they are quite stiff when new. After washing they are lovely and soft and easy to work with. Perfect for dressmaking and crafts. Weight after washing: 160 grams per metre, approximately.

Fabrics are 90 cm / 36 in wide, approximately. Fat Quarters are 50 x 45 cm / 18 x 20 in, approximately.

Per Fat Quarter: £3.10     Per metre: £12.40

3 Cats logo label

The famous Three Cats logo guarantees the real thing: genuine Shwe Shwe colours by Da Gama Textiles in South Africa
