Angelina fabric
STORY BY
VLISCO BOOK

The origin of this motif is a Coptic altar cloth. The pattern was originally one of the most important products in the Vlisco range. It continues to be produced by Vlisco to this very day and has been imitated repeatedly since the sixties. This design is ever-present whenever the hippie trend comes back in style.

Also known as: Cigar Band (Ghana?), Addis Ababa

For Joop, Constance, and anyone else who might be wondering: the name 'Angelina' has its roots in 1970s Ghana. In the late seventies, the popularity of the print coincided with the release of the hit song "Angelina" by legendary Ghanaian highlife group The Sweet Talks. People began referring to the printed fabric as 'Angelina' (after the similarly vibrant track) and the name has become so popular that even Vlisco now uses it when referring to the iconic print. If you have always wondered why it is they call it 'Angelina', now you know!


FAQs

We recommend washing your fabrics before use. Use a mild detergent intended for delicate items. Set your washing machine to cold or 30 degrees, and its agitation cycle to delicate. Wash clothes and remove them from the washing machine. Shake gently to remove wrinkles. Air dry in indirect sunlight and in a room where air can circulate. Moreover, when you are cleaning your wax print fabrics you should separate them from your other clothing in order to prevent any unfortunate color running incidents from occurring. Once washed, you should hang your wet wax print fabrics on a clothing line and secure them in place with plastic pegs or fasteners that will not leave marks.

Sometimes there is a company label on the fabric that needs to be removed. This paper normally comes off fairly easily when it is heated lightly with an iron. Still adhesive left behind? Place paper towel over the adhesive and then a piece of cloth over the paper towel, the iron it. The adhesive should transfer onto the paper towel. Rub a good quality detergent directly into the area. If some of the adhesive left, re-treat the area. Alternatively, you can try blotting rubbing alcohol directly onto the stain and washing again as normal. But always make sure you test any treatments on an inconspicuous area of the fabric first to ensure that your method and the material are compatible.
