Dutch Wax Prints also known as African wax prints and ankara are omnipresent and common materials for clothing in Africa, especially West Africa.
Super-Wax from Vlisco
Super-Wax is made of an extra densely woven, fine and luxurious cotton fabric. Super-Wax has a recognizable design signature that is different from Wax Block as it always features a two-coloured, natural and unique crackling effect. A third colour may be added to the print but without this crackling effect. This refers to the process of wax-based batik techniques, which gives the Super-Wax prints their unique styles and reflect African pride and status. Super-Wax designs are printed on both sides of the fabric (cotton cloth). The appealing pattern and unique colour combinations ensure that everyone can express their personality in their clothing.
We use a unique collection of shades like yellow, blue, green, red, pink, purple, orange and brown. The fabrics are available in 6 yards, sometimes also in 2, 4 or 12. The two selvedges always have the Vlisco VVH logo and the words SUPER-WAX repeated twice per yard.

Since 1846 we have been creating exclusive Dutch fabrics in Holland that have influenced the African fashion landscape, also called Wax Hollandais.
