Shwe Shwe

Shwe Shwe is a traditional South African print and is worn by all races and classes in South Africa. It is a really colourful, beautiful and strong textile. Everyone in Melbourne should go and check out the new Shwe Shwe store at 210 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy it's excellent for those of you, like me, who love colour. I love happy looking textiles.
