Dutch Fabric House Vlisco Shares Bauhaus-Inspired Wax Hollandais Prints

Dutch fabric house Vlisco shares the lookbook for 'Think,' a new Bauhaus-inspired Wax Hollandais print collection.

Words by Fraser Johnston & Alyssa Klein


Dutch fabric house Vlisco recently shared the lookbook for their new textile collection of bright geometric "Wax Hollandais" prints. Inspired by the architectural and minimalistic world of Bauhaus, one of Germany's earliest schools of design, Think sees a dazzling new attitude from the 160-plus-year-old brand. "For this collection we have not only [been] influenced by Bauhaus design philosophies, but also by their approach to colour," the company shared in an announcement. "By creating new colours, such as the grassy green, and combining and layering them in a striking fashion the colours too tell a story." The new prints are part of a larger campaign focusing on the "intimate bond between mother and daughter." Look out for behind-the-scenes footage, interviews and do-it-yourself video’s from Vlisco's Think collection coming soon.
