Original art cards to frame. This design showcases the iconic Shweshwe fabric introduced by German settlers in Natal and the Eastern Cape in the early 1800’s and soon adopted by the local Xhosa inhabitants. Originally the fabric was only available in blue designs, but recently the range has been expanded to a wonderful variety of vibrant colours.

This is an A5 fabric picture created using applique and freehand machine embroidery sewn onto cardstock. The technique involves guiding fabric by hand, any squiggles in the stitching adding to its handmade character. Each card is unique and may use a slightly different selection of fabrics, thread colour or design details to those shown here. Please ask us if there is a particular colour palette you prefer - we can show you the range currently available before shipping to you.

The card is blank inside and it is supplied with an envelope.

You can buy single cards, or select four or more A5 cards of any design to be elegantly packaged in a gift box. Other designs in the range include Table Mountain, Home from the Market, Landrover, Taxi
