Shweshwe fabrics Shweshwe are traditional and high quality cotton fabrics from South Africa and Lesotho. As in the past, they are now produced using "blue print" copper roll printing. You get the fabrics at True Fabrics in a variety of colors and designs. The beautiful filigree and geometric patterns are their outstanding distinguishing feature. Behind the fabrics is the Da Gama-Textiles company in Zwelitsha in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Almost 60% of the company is indirectly owned by its employees. FROM SOUTH AFRICA Discover fabrics True Story Aboriginal designs Our Aboriginal designs are printed on feather-soft cotton. One of the oldest art forms in the world finds its way into our hearts. In a colorful tradition, many designs reflect the philosophy of the native people of Australia. Aborigines were nomads, ate nature, gathered and hunted. But they would never have done anything to the environment that polluted or harmed them. They adored their beloved country and its environment. That's why the fabrics suit us so well, because they reflect what for True Fabrics stands. FROM AUSTRALIA Discover fabrics True Story Batik fabrics The art of batik is deeply rooted in West Africa. In our high-quality collection from Togo, we will show you which wonderful designs can result from it. The best thing about it: the fabrics are made in a training and production center where girls are trained as batiks and seamstresses free of charge. The sale helps to make the social enterprise supported by donations financially independent. Each piece is unique, a form of expression for its producer and a work of art.
