ShweShwe Ballo

Posted on March 17, 2015 by Alistair Barnes

On a trip to the Mozambican coast we recently came upon some local ShweShwe fabrics. We brought some of our favourites into the lab for some experiments and before we new it we had a new range.

Introducing a world first from Ballo- ShweShwe sunglasses, handmade in Woodstock, Cape Town.

We decided to keep the traditional eyewood temples in Imbuia (African Walnut) and are only producting the ShweShwe range in our two most popular silhouettes- the Barnes (below) and the Gallo (below that).
