Hi Janine!

Thanks!
I had a look at the website, and although April looks to be a crazy month, I'll definitely work on something to enter!!

Hi Janine. Great to hear from you again. I trust that you are having a great time abroad and that the weather there is much better than our local weather. How are you doing? I cannot imagine how active you must have been since you left SA. What are your future plans and are there any similarities between our and Sweden's clothing and textile industry?

Hello there Janine,
I have been working with natural fibres in Nepal for a long time now and can supply you with fibre, yarns, textiles, as well as finished goods. Please have a look at www.heavenhemp.co.uk and www.wildweaves.co.uk to get an idea of what we do. I work with hemp, nettle, cactus, banana, bamboo . Hope to hear from you and would like to be your friend. Take care,
Udaya Delete Comment

Hi Janine, the tartan(s) (there are now 22 African tartans) will be woven in both wool and mohair in South Africa. In due course they will be woven in cotton in each respective country where it is ecologically sensible to do so (cotton grown in the wrong climate can be disastrous for the water supply). The vast majority of finished goods will be made in Africa.
The whole process from shearing to finished cloth is organic in that it is wholly natural and without the use of any pollutants. It is the most ethical product I know in that it creates employment at fair wages where unemploymnt is high but also ensures that a share of the profits are retained by the producers for investment and attempts to overcome tribalism. That is why Tutu,de Klerk and Mandela will be on Table Mountain along with governmenmt and provincial minisaters and celebrities on the16th December.
Each tartan design is registered and accepted by each respective government as a new national/international symbol and is also made in the form of wrapping paper, stationery etc as part of a worldwide 'branding'.
If you would like more information please look at www.tartansforafrica.com and www.internationaltartans.co.uk or e-mail me at davidmcgill61@yahoo.co.uk
By the way a percentage of the profits from sales of the Swedish tartan already goes to support humanitarian projects in Africa. In due course it too will be woven in South Africa.

Hi Janine, you might be interested to know that the South Africa tartan will be launched at a televised ceremony on Table Mountain on 16th December in front of several national and international dignitaries. A pre_World Cup all-African show is planned for June and young designers are welcome
