Shweshwe is a stiff cotton fabric that initially came from India and was heavily starched to fight off the damp in the ships’ storage compartments as it crossed the ocean to the Eastern Cape. Xhosa women took a look at these wondrous bolts of cloth, fell in love with the Shweshwe fabric and made it their own. Shweshwe is a traditional dress fabric that has become wildly popular in modern African couture culture.
