African Fabrics Online: Jansen Holland

What would be of African fashion without some nice wax prints? There would still be something, as Africa is such a strong continent that African people would still take a little bit of something known and build a whole new creation out of it, that's for sure. Nevertheless, today wax prints are representing the most popular and familiar picture of African fashion worldwide, and that's why we always enjoy discovering interesting brands and companies working hard on it.

This time we wanted to introduce you a well known European wax print wholesaler and retailer: Jansen Holland. It's amazing how this dutch company has made it possible to survive after 80 years of trading history, and not only that, but also to grow up and remain as one of the top selling and most respected names in its field worldwide. That's obviously a matter of quality, tradition, savoir faire and passion about African design, and even in such a competitive market these kind of companies are moving nowadays, it wouldn't be hard to believe that they'll still be there in another 80 years from today.

What else can we say, just check their website out and discover the top designers and producers they work with: Vlisco, Julius Holland, Bauer... and of course the fantastic collection of wax blocks, javas and superwaxs they're selling.

Feel the Dashiki Fever!

It's already out there, and it has arrived to stay. Everybody's talking about them because they look so nice on ladies, men, children... just amazing how this item is becoming a real trend, not only for African fashion lovers, but even crossing the border into mainstream clothing. Of course, we're talking about these lovely dashikis all over the place.

Just a few months ago it was still an extravagance and something quite rare to see on the streets, at least among non African people, but today you have noticed that a lot of fashion victims love the dashiki to wear a piece of exotic and colorful fashion once in a while. The influence of traditional African patterns and the Ankara wax designs have been brightly combined with an standard t-shirt cut to bring a fresh breeze to your wardrobe.

Zuvaa, Etsy or Africa Imports can offer you some beautiful and affordable pieces for you to choose, but you shouldn't miss a big one for this product, and that's Dashiki Pride, with so many cuts, sizes and designs to make you embrace the trend. For you people living in North America and Europe, you'll still have to wait for the springtime again to feel the fever, but what's clear is that dashikis are here to stay.
