Amaconsi means drops in Zulu. Made in South Africa exclusively for The African Artisan. This is a limited-edition range of Shweshwe table linen. The range consist of table runners, placemats and serviettes. You can use the serviettes together with any of our bowls or the other linen from the Amaconsi Shweshwe Blue range. For gifting ideas pair together with our floral white bowls and platters. Instead of flowers use the Amaconsi Shweshwe Serviettes Blue to wrap chocolates or home baked pastries in. Either way these lovely serviettes will bring joy to any occasion.
