Shweshwe uniforms

The Bulungula College team wanted to do away with traditional uniform styles, add a little unique flair that reflects how special we think the Bulungula College is 🙂 and importantly keep costs down for parents and learners. We decided to ditch the old-style tie and add a bit of traditional African shweshwe fabric as a trim. Costs would be kept down by sticking to the regular grey pants, navy skirts and white shirts that are cost-effective – we were helped by ladies in the village to add the shweshwe trim to the shirt collars and pockets.

    What a wonderful idea! I LOVE the shweshwe trim and the involvement of the village women. I could even imagine some tourists being interested inpurchasing a traditional Bulungula College shirt. Add a logo!
