Discover our WaxWax fabric. Look closely, and you’ll discover its magic in the details. One fabric with different prints on each side. More beauty in every yard. Our magical line-up of WaxWax now includes a classic and new design, in multiple colours.
WaxWax fabrics are truly double-sided, each side is its own unique self, but also a perfect complement to its other side. A versatile fabric to create a look with remarkable details, play with the double designs on sleeves, frills, trims or any flourishes to make your garment distinctly yours.
The world of wax is a bottomless well that dives deep down into the history of time, and is entangled with tradition, heritage, culture and identity. It is a pool of skill and knowledge, ever so gloriously beautiful and rich.
Wax is deeply seeded within the heritage of many women, entangled with their lives and embraced by them as they use the fabrics to weave their own stories. These stories are beautiful and evocative, like complex tapestries. Wax is all over, as it peppers the lives of women. It flows outside of their bodies, covering surroundings.
