Product information

This popular fabric in DRCongo is called ‘Village Molokai’, as connecting the village of Molokai in DRCongo to the village depicted on the design. The pattern is also called “Guerre de Shaba”, ‘The War of Shaba’, on account of the struggle for independence that broke out in Shaba, a province in the southern part of DRCongo, now known as Katanga.

Super-Wax

The most defining (and beloved) feature of a Super-Wax is its duo-colour “bubbling” print effect. Made using a highly-unique wax printing technique unlike any other in the world, every piece of Super-Wax 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. The magic of the ‘wax-breaking’ during the printing process results in a large, irregular pattern of vein-like bubbles throughout the design. One single Super-Wax goes through an average of 27 total steps before completion. The result is a layering of vibrant colours, ‘bubbles’ and imagery unique to Super-Wax, and produced only by Vlisco.

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