Six Yards

Safari Fusion blog | Six Yards | Celebrating the Dutch textiles of Vlisco
I don't think I will ever tire of viewing and collecting African fabrics, the colours and patterns are just so interesting and beautiful.

Recently the MMKA (Museum Voor Moderne Kunst Arnhem) in the Netherlands held the exhibition Six Yards, celebrating the Dutch textiles of Vlisco.
"...over a hundred years old, born in Indonesia, designed in the Netherlands, loved in Africa, and desired in the West. These colourful fabrics make their way to fashion shows in Paris, the markets in Ghana, and galleries in London and New York."
