Vlisco’s heritage is quite unlike any other. Since 1846, Vlisco created unique textiles influencing the fashion landscape in West and Central Africa. These fabrics reflect true Dutch craftsmanship and were originally known as ‘Hollandais’, from the French word for ‘Dutch’. They’re still the only brand creating authentic Dutch Wax fabrics recognisable for their unique design, colours and wax craquelé. Today, Vlisco is an International brand with a rich heritage and many heart-warming stories to tell. Stories of family history, inheritance and of fabrics that have deeper meaning and are honoured with names of endearment by their consumers and traders. The story is as such ever evolving. Vlisco, the true original.
