WAX WORKS 
written by Anna Lisa Reynolds
The bright, graphic patterns of wax fabrics popular in West and Central African culture have long been a source of inspiration to artists and designers the world over. For the uninitiated, though, it might come as a surprise to learn that the first of these distinctive roller-printed textiles came to Africa by way of the Netherlands and Indonesia. Vlisco, founded by Pieter Fentener van Vlissingen in Helmond in 1846, originally exported imitation batik fabrics to the islands then known as the Dutch East Indies, but soon found a more fertile market for its bold designs in West Africa (helped, no doubt, by the popularity of its Indonesian fabrics with Ghanaian soldiers returning home from postings with the Royal Netherlands East Indies Army). Vlisco began adapting its designs, under the influence of their local trading partners in this flourishing new market, and its famous Dutch Wax textiles were born.

In the intervening years, Vlisco textiles have come to embody a creative dialogue between the Netherlands and Africa, building an extensive archive of colourful and symbolic designs. This year, to celebrate its 170th anniversary, Vlisco has created an exhibition, Vlisco 1:1 / UN a UN, at the Gemeentemuseum Helmond, which explores the history of the company and its archive, and tells the stories of the remarkable African women who had such a profound influence on its products and its success. Designed by Studio Harm Rensink, with surface design by Michiel Schuurman, 1:1 / UN a UN is an immersive riot of colour and pattern that places visitors within the world of Vlisco, and sheds light upon the ways in different cultural influences collide and are assimilated into each other, within fashion and beyond. We caught up with both Rensink and Schuurman to discover the ideas and processes that came together to create the exhibition.
