Vlisco, I love you


I’ve long had an obsession with African fabrics.  The bold, bright patterns and colors are completely entrancing to me.  I am in the process of adding more African wax prints into the offerings at WomanShopsWorld.  And in my research and obsession over these bold beauties, I have fallen into the tunnel of Vlisco.  Talk about bold and beautiful!  Vlisco has been designing dutch wax prints for the African and West African market since 1846, so they’ve had some time to perfect their designs.  And perfection they have achieved.  These fabrics are high-fashion, for the affluent woman who wants to make her mark.  Watch this video from one of their past summer collections and tell me you haven’t fallen in love…

And with this, I’m off to search for more wax prints!


About Carter Seibels

I have a fascination with the world at large, and all of its people. The things we make, eat, wear, discard. There is so much to explore, so much to see, so much to feel, taste, smell, touch. There's much too much to do, to sit around on the couch. I have an eye for color and a sense for the unusual, and I love to travel, to explore, to have my senses dazzled. I gather my findings, the things that catch my eye, here- to share with you and all who might chance this way, with joy and thanksgiving for the beautiful world in which we live.
