Introducing a new collaboration: Vlisco x Komono

Komono wants to offer more than beautiful patterns and wrap your wrist in stories. Therefor we are proud to present you the first Vlisco x Komono collection. Vlisco has everything you look for in a collaboration: a huge heritage, a true original with a fierce passion for their craft and unlimited stories to tell. This is the partnership dreams are made of.

Vlisco's heritage is quite unlike any other. Since 1846, Vlisco created unique textiles influencing the fashion landscape in West and Central Africa. These fabrics reflect true Dutch craftsmanship and were originally known as Hollandais from the French word for Dutch. They're still the only brand creating authentic Dutch Wax fabrics recognisable for their unique design, colours and wax craquelé.

Vlisco, a story as unique as their fabrics.

Vlisco's famous fabrics and print designs have inspired many iconic brands to embrace the merging of Dutch and African roots in the world of global fashion, art, design and music. All this creativity has resulted in a truly colourful and original world.

Colour is their obsession as they make their own unique colours in-house to ensure the deepest, most vibrant colours that are colourfast too.

For this collaboration Komono and Vlisco are introducing a unique capsule collection of 6 Komono watches fashioned with the first registered fabric from the Vlisco archive, “the Snakeskin print”, designed back in 1922.

The Snakeskin Print is one of the oldest designs still available in the Vlisco archive and registered as design 001 in the records. These motifs are associated with the gravel around a house, protecting and alerting the inhabitants of intruders, hence the name ‘The Household Gravel’.

Style your wrist with the perfect match of Vlisco and Komono.

This collaboration is available in two different models, The Winston and The Estelle, both available in 3 colorways (silver - gold - indigo).

All pieces are unique, as a result of the wax craquelé on the strap and the limited series-number etched on the case back. Each watch personifies the Vlisco and Komono collaboration perfectly.
