My love affair with shwe shwe continues

Every now and again I type 'South Africa' into Etsy's geolocator, to find out what's happening in my neighbourhood. Today I found Bokkie Shoes!

I think I need a pair of these

or theseor these
and some of these for when summer comes round again.


See more Bokkie Shoes on their Flickr page.

And if you want your own bit of shwe shwe to play around with, you can buy some here.

Oh my... what a find! Dunno whether I'm more excited about the shoes or the online shwe-shwe orders. I think I might have to lock my credit card away for a bit...

My sister just sent me a shwe shwe kimono she got made up. Its so stunning. I'm trying to find excuses for wearing it to work!

I just found these on Etsy and then came to see what you've been up to and here they are! I love the brown & yellow ones. Would be interested to know if anyone has bought off them, the no feedback is putting me off a bit. :/

i work with shwe shwe and i saw these shoes for sale at rosebank mall in johannesburg, apparently (according to shop owner) they are not selling cause shwe shwe is not fashionable at the moment...what non sense...its like saying cotton is out of fashion....they are lovely and i tried them on i even have a bag to match...
