Three Cats shweshwe fabric by da Gama Textiles in South Africa is 100% cotton, first dyed the background color and then printed with copper rollers and then starched as it has been done since its origins in Germany. Starch washes out with machine washing (including starch lines that may appear where unwashed fabric is creased.
This fabric with a circle design is dyed golden yellow and printed with orange and black. For scale, the three cats label is approx. 5 3/8" x 6 7/8".
The fabric comes to us folded by the meter (1 meter is approx. 39 inches), so for ease that is how we are selling it, by the meter. The fabric is 35" wide. Half meter minimum (even if it says yard!)
Shrinkage is up to 10% so one meter will end up being a approximately one yard after washing.
Wash separately, cold to warm.
