These brightly coloured serviettes are made from Shwe Shwe, a 100% cotton fabric manufactured in South Africa. Shwe Shwe is often referred to as the denim of Africa due to its wide use in everyday life in southern Africa.

The fabric has been washed and pre-shrunk.  The exact size of the shwe shwe serviette is determined by the amount of shrinkage and measures approximately 40 - 42cm square.

Actual colors may vary from those shown due to the nature of photographing and monitor colour settings.
