Super-Wax is, like all of Vlisco’s famous Wax Hollandais fabrics, made using a technique based on Indonesian Batik dyeing. The process is similar to that of Wax Hollandais, but what makes Super-Wax stand out is the “crackle” that gives this printed textile its unique signature: A two-colour bubble effect, achieved by the wax layer being broken on the fabric before being immersed into a dye bath, that gives this printed fabric its unique signature. As a result of truly mastered craftsmanship, a Super-Wax fabric takes an average of 27 steps to complete, and features Vlisco’s vivid, colourful prints on both sides of the cloth.

Super-Wax is so special that it even has its own dedicated cloth, a densely woven 100% pure cotton in 120 gr/m² grammage called “1600”. Smooth and crisp, with a hint of a sheen, this distinctive cotton holds deep colours and rich designs exceptionally well. It’s a dream to work with — and to wear — because of its strength. At the same time, it drapes nicely and feels soft to your skin. We’ve found that you can wash Super-Wax clothing more than 49 times without losing any intensity in the colour.
In a medium weight and emblazoned with dramatic patterns to reflect your personality, this beautiful fabric is ideal for formal and evening wear. It will make you feel like you’re wearing a work of art.
How to care for Wax Hollandais
This strong, pure cotton fabric is easy to care for – but be sure to treat it gently. Machine wash inside out at a low temperature, making sure to separate light and dark colours and hang to dry in the shade. Do not bleach or tumble dry. Iron inside out at a maximum temperature of 150°C.
