'African print’ is used to identify a category of textiles using 100% cotton fabric in vibrant colours, which are printed by machine using wax resins and dyes so that they have a batik-like effect on both sides of the fabric.
The method is called wax-resist dying because the wax ‘resists’ the dye from penetrating the entire cloth, which is how patterns are made. It also goes by the names of super wax, java, and Ankara, with ‘wax’ named fabrics having a somewhat glossy, stiff, waxy feeling surface even though they are roller printed. It has detailed ethnic patterns and colours and is often named after sayings, personalities or occasions.
The term ‘Dutch wax’ and ‘wax hollandaise’ is also common as the prints’ predominant country of origin is Holland.
