South African Shweshwe Fabric & Prints
Bold colors and stunning geometric patterns make Bosisi bags unique. We call them ‘happy’ colors because they enliven your day.
Shweshwe is a printed dyed cotton fabric widely used for traditional South African clothing. Colorful bags make you feel happy and invigorated. It’s no surprise that color can have a powerful effect on your emotions. Colors can feel energizing and make you feel more alert, grabbing your attention and showing your joy.
