Genuine Da Gama Indigo Dyed Discharge Printed Fabric

"Shweshwe is a printed dyed cotton fabric widely used for traditional South African clothing. Originally dyed indigo, the fabric is manufactured in a variety of colours and printing designs characterised by intricate geometric patterns.Due to its timeless popularity, shweshwe has been described as the denim, or tartan, of South Africa.
The local name shweshwe is believed to be derived from the fabric's association with Lesotho's King Moshoeshoe I who was gifted with the fabric by French missionaries in the 1840s and subsequently popularised it"
