In May 1940, a Portuguese trader named Nogueira arrived in Helmond in the Netherlands to order a custom-made Wax Hollandais. He conceived an idea for a design with six spark plugs (bougies), indicating that its wearer had a six-cylinder car, a sign of wealth. During the Second World War, Vlisco was unable to carry out production operations, but numerous trial productions with Six Bougies were conducted. After the war, this supply of fabric constituted the first shipment to the fully dried-up Congolese market, and it appears to have been an immediate success. Over the years the design took different popular meaning: the woman in the middle is strong enough to take on six men.
A modern take on beloved Vlisco classic designs, in fresh new colours. Made using a highly-unique wax printing technique unlike any other in the world, every Classic Revival fabric is created with an unequalled and extraordinary level of care and precision. First, a classic Vlisco 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 Classic Revival 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.
Perfect for flowing tops, skirts and dresses with maximum draping.
