The Fragrance Route | Shweshwe Stop Project

Read more about the Shweshwe Stop where a range of kitchenware, gifts, buttons, toys and bags are for sale, all made by local women. The flagship product is the PROEbag, designed as a non-electric slow cooker but with numerous other uses as well. (Another version of this product made the Time Magazine “top 50 genius products worldwide” list in October 2018.)

Visit the Shweshwe Stop at The Friemersheim Sewing Group Monday-Friday until lunch and some afternoons, contact Petra (082 957 7715) at the Friemersheim lavender nursery to confirm and for week-end visits by appointment. Cash only.

PROEbags are also for sale at the Great Brak River Museum with a percentage of sales donated to their fund.
