History

African Prints andtextiles are cotton fabric manufactured in the Netherlands and printed with African-influenced designs using Dutch-wax.The textile evolved from Batik which was earlier made in Indonesia when it was a Dutch colony.

Batik is handmade by repeatedly dyeing a cotton sheet to print simple or complex motif designs against base backgrounds.Resin wax is applied to sections of the sheet to control coloring of the design pattern.

The Dutch used machines to create wax-print fabric similar to Batik but the resulting fabric had imperfections with bubble effects when compared to hand-made Batik.The Batik-inspired machine- made fabric was appreciated in West Africa and tribal designs were drawn into the patterns.Over the years, the design patterns for the machine-printed fabric was influenced by African art and culture.Traditional designs included geometric, floral, animal patterns using bright colors and bold shades.Symbols promoted themes, famous persons or events. Colors gave significance.

The textile became known as African Print even after the Dutch perfected automated wax-printing in the Netherlands.Today, quality fabrics are printed in Africa and in Holland.African Prints have become a cultural heritage that connects personalities with the continent.
