Twelve exclusive Frances rucksacks in Shwe Shwe fabric by designer Ally Capellino. Shwe Shwe, was first manufactured in Europe in the 18th Century and exported to South Africa, where it is still widely used for traditional clothing. The process is a block and discharge print onto dyed cotton, using copper rollers to print a weak acid solution which bleaches out the colour.
