My first ‘Nichem’ brand Wax Print. So first up, it’s wonderful to source Nigerian printed textiles!
The accurate, wax-masked process comes first (Indigo colour), then the Yellow and Purple are ‘Blocked’ in over the top – Blocking is pretty wild, with random offsets 2-7mm… personally, I LOVE the offsets, and wish there were more, and more wild. I’m going to work strategically with the ‘best’ sections, so they get shown off to their full.
Colours: it’s an acid Yellow (hint of Green); Indigo is deep and rich, almost Black; Purple is also rich, and very complementary with the Indigo – on a ‘good’ offset, I love the depth of field it creates as the Purple passes through different colour-contrasts (becoming foreground/background). Looking at it right now, there is lovely, even ‘Cracking’ in the indigo throughout (hairline cracks in the wax masking), that echoes the crack-motif in the design of the white sections.
All-in-all a lively, organic print… more Nichem please!
