5 STEPS TO IDENTIFY AUTHENTIC VLISCO SUPER-WAX

1THE ICONIC SUPER-WAX LABEL

This special green and gold label on the fabric should state: ‘GUARANTEED REAL DUTCH SUPER-WAX BLOCK PRINTS - PRINTED IN HOLLAND’.


2THE SUN

Our well-known sun is always visible on the fabric label and shows the VVH crest in the middle.


3THE DESIGN NUMBER

Check that the design number on the edge of the fabric (the selvedge) matches the number in the white box on the green, rectangular label on the fabric.


4SELVEDGE

When we talk about the selvedge, we are referring to the unprinted edge of the fabric.

  • The top selvedge bears the words ‘VERITABLE WAX HOLLANDAIS VLISCO’, while the selvedge on the bottom states ‘GUARANTEED DUTCH WAX VLISCO’. On both sides the Vlisco sun is rising above the words.
  • The word SUPER-WAX is repeated twice per yard.
  • There are irregular dye lines and marks on the selvedge.
  • The selvedge, unless dyed a colour, is usually less bright white than many copies.


5THE GREEN LABEL

The text ‘PRINTED BY VLISCO IN HOLLAND’ is printed in capital letters on the green, rectangular label on the fabric.
