A New Twist for Traditional African Textile

Shweshwe (shwe-shwe) a traditional African textile with a wonderfully rich history, has been around for a very long time, but more recently due to it's perfectly geometrically print, the rich colour and strength of the fabric, it is now being used in Interior Decor - see post on Vintage Rose Studio. An example of it's use as "upholstery for chair pads" is shown in the photograph above.
