Wholesale Orders

Based in Canada, we are primarily importers and distributors of Three Cats Shweshwe from South Africa and we ship to small businesses all over the world

but we do offer retail sales on prints that are not carried by the retailers who purchase from us. Shweshwe Retail Online Store HERE

If you are in business either selling textiles or producing items in cotton fabric 

like garments, home decor, table linens, quilts, bags or toys, Shweshwe would be an exciting and creative option to expand your range of designs. Shweshwe indigo, red and chocolate prints are also an excellent choice for costume design, if you are looking for vintage calico prints.
