The Babalwa necklace features a mash up of materials and techniques – shweshwe and macrame!
It features a thicker version of Nomi Handmade’s flagship fabric necklace adorned with rope in a contrasting colour manipulated to form a flat macrame braid. Gold thread completes the neckpiece at the back.
The pattern seen here is called honeycomb for its indigo and white hexagonal pattern.
Made from authentic shweshwe, this 100% cotton necklace is hypoallergenic and super-lightweight.
Dress this bold and proudly South African piece up or down. Make a statement in jeans, a solid tee and ballet pumps, or a pencil skirt, blazer and heels, etc. Guys, wear them with cargos, a solid-colour tee and sneakers.
Babalwa means gifted in Xhosa. We hope you agree with the sentiment behind its name!
