Our Fabrics

All Natural…

Basadi products reflect the quality and exclusiveness associated with the brand.  The project use high-end natural textiles such as cotton.

Shweshwe is one of the main cotton textiles used in designs. The Original Shweshwe printed fabric has become synonymous with quality by both the formal and informal sectors of the economy.  Shweshwe have the unique traditional characteristics: all fabrics are 100% cotton. Because these fabrics are starched in the factory – that’s the tradition – they are quite stiff when new. After washing they are lovely and soft and easy to work with.

Shweshwe is widely used for traditional South African clothing. Originally dyed indigo, the fabric is manufactured in a variety of colours and printing designs characterized by intricate geometric patterns.
