Shweshwe ladies purse

Shweshwe ladies purse
Love this


Anyone familiar with shweshwe fabrics will be able to see that the colour reproduction in my photographs doesn't do justice to the fabric of this purse. The lime green lining, however, is a good likeness.

Shweshwe colours are vibrant and intense - this purse is a deeper, yet brighter turquoise and green than seen in the photographs. If you have an interest I will be pleased to post a small swatch of the fabric for you to see.

This is a firm, sturdy purse, fastened with a magnetic snap. The 100% African cotton shweshwe fabric is interfaced with a heavy fusible interfacing, then further strengthened with foam.

Inside there is a central zip pocket, suitable for cash. There are two credit/debit/store card flaps, each holding up to 6 cards. Behind each flap is a slip pocket to hold bank notes, papers, etc. The centre of the purse is a small open 'box-style' pocket, approximately 1" across the bottom, able to hold a small mobile phone, a small note-book and pen, or cosmetics items, if required.

The purse measures 8" wide x 4" high x 1-1/4" deep.
