Yellow, Blue and White on Brown Sunburst Shweshwe (1502)

Three Cats shweshwe fabric by Da Gama Textiles in South Africa is 100% cotton. It is first dyed the background color, then printed with copper rollers, and finally it's starched as it has been done since its origins in Germany. Starch may cause crease lines and odor, but both wash out with laundering. 

This fabric is dyed dark brown and printed with a white, blue and yellow sunburst design. For scale, the three cats label is approximately 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.

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.
