ShweShwe, a common print in South African and Lesotho cultures from the 1800’s, gets a contemporary revival thanks to the colorful mastermind that is Ghislaine Viñas. Decades after moving out of South Africa, Viñas was so inspired by ShweShwe’s rich history and tradition that she gave the fabric new life as wallpaper. Once the intricate, geometric pattern rolled out in 2016, it immediately became a Flavor fan favorite. To toast its special status on our menu, FP + GV are giving it a fresh twist with an au courant color palette and a petite pattern scale (reduced from 18" to 12” in diameter) to complement today’s tastes while staying true to its dynamic drumbeat.
“I’m excited to bring my interpretation of ShweShwe, South Africa’s denim equivalent, to interior spaces. The enlarged design elements make it modern, and the colorways will really make your walls pop.”
