Based in Canada, I am a wholesaler and retailer of Shweshwe, 100% cotton printed fabric from South Africa. Shweshwe is similar to vintage calico, and it's production dates back to the industrial revolution, when it was made in England and shipped to the colonies, but after Apartheid ended, a South African company purchased the production and design rights. Besides producing classic Shweshwe prints in indigo, red and brown, they have modern prints as well. Visit my website to learn more about this beloved fabric, which is called the "Tartan of South Africa".
