Three Cats shweshwe fabric by da Gama Textiles in South Africa is 35" wide, 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. Sometimes you can see the starch where the fabric has been creased, but that too, will wash out.
This fabric is dyed turquoise and printed with apple green, black and orange. 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. 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. Do not bleach Do not dry clean. Tumble drying not recommended.
