Wax Hollandais
Known as: Record, Disque, Cible, Plaque-Plaque, Target, Nsu Bura

Product information

This drawing first appeared on the market in the 1960s and goes by many names, such as “Plaque-Plaque”, “Target”, and “Nsu Bura”, which means ‘water well’ in Ghana. When you throw a stone in a water well, you can see a ripple effect. The message is that whatever you do, good or bad, it will have an effect on everyone around you. Other names include “Consulaire”, “Gbédjégan” (which is a traditional straw king’s hat in Togo), and “Gbedze”, a hat worn during daily activities to protect the wearer from the sun. In Nigeria, the design is known as Record, thanks to the circular shape of the motif, which reminds many consumers and traders of old vinyl records.

Wax Hollandais

In the factories of Helmond in 1852, Vlisco completed its first batch of what would become known as ‘Wax Hollandais’. Now more than 160 years later, it remains Vlisco’s most popular fabric. Made using a highly-unique wax printing technique unlike any other in the world, every piece of Wax Hollandais is created with an unequalled and extraordinary level of care and precision. First, a design in liquid wax is printed on cotton. A base dye such as indigo soaks into the cloth around the wax, leaving behind a deep, intense colour. One single piece of Wax Hollandais goes through an average of 25 total steps before completion, and part of the magic of wax printing can cause a pattern of small, irregular bubbles and crackling to emerge throughout the design. Vlisco’s sophisticated printing processes result in complex and brilliant layers of imagery and colour.

An upgraded, all-purpose fabric for strong and long-lasting garments, including dresses, jackets, trousers and wraps.
