Newest shweshwe dresses 2019

Shweshwe – also known in Sesotho as shoeshoe for King Moshoeshoe – was once used to create simple traditional dresses, but has now become part of a fashion movement that’s modernising the use of the print.

The love of shweshwe, popularly worn in blue, brown and red, has been passed from one generation to another over centuries. It is often seen at Xhosa weddings, where it is worn by the makhoti (bride).
