DUTCH WAX

Sundays in South London are full of Dutch Wax fabric. West African women dressed in exquisite head-to-toe ensembles on their way to church bearing tupperwears stuffed with food to share. I have always enjoyed the defiance of this glorious procession, its protest against drabness and its communal peacocking.

When I started making plague masks at the beginning of the pandemic, to send out to friends I could no longer share space with, Dutch Wax was the perfect fabric to use. The prints felt totemic and it pleased me to create a mini tribe of technicolour plague rats, doing the pandemic in our own way: if we have to wear masks then we might as well make a feature out of it.

This 100% cotton fabric comes from the dutch wax emporiums dotted around Brixton’s markets. These shopping trips are often followed by breakfast at my favourite Columbian diner. Please give me more excuses to go there.
