Celebrating 170 years of Vlisco
Posted on 05 September 2016
As one of their official partners, Hilton Textiles are joining together with Vlisco in celebrating 170 years of stunning fashion.
One incredible fact about Vlisco that perhaps you didn't know is that each Wax takes two weeks to make, and they go through an astonishing 27 treatments both by machine and by hand! These techniques and skills have been amassed over the course 170 years of design, this wisdom forms the basis of Vlisco's patterns and design structure.
Vlisco's story began in 1846 when founder Pieter Fentener van Vlissingen started the company in the Netherlands. Today Wax Hollandais are adored by women across Central and Western Africa.
One core value that both Vlisco and Hilton Textiles passionately believe in is that the customer is at the heart of what we do. It is you who display the designs and patterns and we want to thank you for your continued support.
Hilton Textiles are privileged to work along side Vlisco and we are honoured to stock the amazing New Collection, we hope you find your inspirational fabrics in these wonderful new designs.
