Vlisco knows Africa, Go Netherlands!

I like Vlisco! I am still wishing that one day the African Fashion will be dictated by local companies!!!
Vlisco is one of the reasons of my support for Netherlands vs Spain  in this soccer world cup. Netherlands has the monopole of the African fashion. Netherlands through Vlisco has been in Africa for the last 160 years!!!  My favorite quote from the website is "They feature craftsmanship second to none, both in look and in quality. From the very beginning, Vlisco has created exciting and expressive textiles, which never use ‘cliché African’ imagery." Okay! They are good and we have been trained to like and desire a "Vlisco Wax Hollandais". I do not own one but they are beautiful... And in 2006 they gained the status of a Fashion Label in Europe. Just saying that Netherlands is African too!
Here some pictures.
