During a visit to the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven in 2013, we discovered the company Vlisco, which is engaged in the design and manufacture of bright and colorful fabrics. Gladly for ourselves, we opened similarity  of our proposed   technology used to create stamps and the design basis "Ekooboi". The exhibition was presented Vlisco cylinders with volume elements as figured and floral patterns, from which transfers the ink to the fabric and each application is unique. Now the technology has modernized, but remained unique.

Vlisco – the brand from Helmond in the Netherlands, known for its unique prints, is to participate in Dutch Design Week for the first time. In an impressive event called Vlisco Unfolded Vlisco will showcase a company on the threshold of a new era: an innovative player in the midst of a transformation from a production-based company to an international design brand. Hans Ouwendijk, CEO of Vlisco Group, says: “We want to share our story, our journey with the world…and invite everyone to become part of it.”

Vlisco’s distinctive design signature, combined with the organic wax production process, ensures that every centimetre of fabric is truly unique. These characteristics have helped Vlisco achieve its iconic status in Africa and global admiration in the worlds of art, design and fashion.
