Shweshwe fabric is an intricate pattern, used in traditional South African design. Our Shweshwe Zip Purse combines this stunning fabric design with traditional beadwork. Made from padded cotton fabric, with an easy to clean soft plastic interior - designs vary slightly. These vibrant and practical purses are made in South Africa by a women's cooperative. Using their hands to 'create, care and share' is the ethos behind this amazing organisation and their products.

About the Maker

Our stunning Shweshwe products are made by South African women working from home using traditional skills such as dyeing, weaving and beadwork.
