Simone Post combines hypnotic patterns with bubbles in wax-printed fabric

hypnotic patterns

Dutch textile designer Simone Post has adapted a traditional wax printing technique to create a colourful fabric that combines 3D geometries with bubble patterns.Post, who is also a founder of design studio Envisions, designed the Bubble Block Wax for Vlisco, a Dutch fabric manufacturer that produces textiles for the African market.

The brand, which has been in business for over 170 years, uses a method derived from traditional Indonesian batik to create its African-inspired prints. Post adapted this technique to create bubble patterns that never repeat.
These bubbles are overlaid with a hypnotic geometric print that brings together 3D blocks and undulating waves.

“The irregularity in the bubbles is a unique quality, which means that no metre of Vlisco is exactly the same,” explained Post.
“It indicates life in the textiles, which adds a quality unlike any other textile printing company,” she told Dezeen.

Traditionally Vlisco’s printing process involves using copper rollers to print a design onto cotton in wax. The fabric is then bathed in indigo dye, before parts of the wax are removed. After that, colours are printed on in layers.
Printing with the wax has a lot of difficulties and technical limitations,” explained Post, “for example, a piece of wax on a piece of cloth can break and let the colours seep through, or it can happen that different layers of colours don’t fit exactly on top of each other.”

Post’s technique see the wax-covered cloth get crushed before being indigo-dyed, which creates the unique variations.
She also managed to avoid the problem of colours not lining up, by developing a design where, instead of creating an outline drawing and filling it in, the geometric pattern is drawn on in colour.
“The colours combined together give a lot of new possibilities,” added Post.

Post has previously worked with Vlisco on numerous projects, including other textiles and a range of carpets made from leftover and misprinted fabrics.
Bubble Block Wax is the first of several Bubble Wax prints that the designer has created for the brand. It comes in a variety of colourways, from a simple blue and purple design to one that combines shades of orange, green and brown.
