Also known as Leteise/Letoitse or Ujamani, Shwe Shwe fabric is produced in the Easetrn Cape province of South Africa. Shweshwe is used in traditional ceremonies especially weddings. Dresses for the bride and bridal team are sewn wholly from the fabric or sewn together with tulle and lace. In recent years seshweshwe has been used for quilting and home decor.

Please visit my instagram or facebook page where I will be sharing photos of Shweshwe in use.

This listing is for one, 100% calico cotton Shwe Shwe African Fabric yard. 36"x 35"inches. Shweshwe is not as wide unfortunately as regular quilting fabric! If you purchase more than 1 yard it will be 1 continuous piece.
