Wren

You all know how excited I get when I discover new South African design blogs. There are just a handful or two of us as far as I know. So I'm pleased to introduce a new SA blogger I've just become aware of "Wren" a Cape Town based blog by a textile designer and graphic artist - who also makes pretty, stylish fabric bags. What's special about her bags is that in many of her designs she uses a South African fabric called Shweshwe. You can find out more about the interesting history of Shweshwe on her blog here, and she has an Etsy shop where you can see more of her designs.

Beautiful bags!
Last summer, dresses made with African print fabrics were the rage!
