Three Cats and Coral Tree shweshwe fabric is manufactured by Da Gama Textiles in South Africa. Calico fabric is dyed a background color and then printed using copper rollers. A weak acid solution is fed onto the fabric, bleaching out distinctive intricate white designs. Three Cats shweshwe comes highly starched. Starch may appear as white lines where fabric is folded, but this washes out easily with laundering.

Shweshwe is used for traditional ceremonies in rural areas of South Africa. Traditional shweshwe colors include brown, blue and red. The colors have expanded to include vivid shades of gold, pink, green and turquoise and the fabric has become very fashionable for apparel and home decorating.

Shrinkage is up to 10%.
