Vlisco&co is a network of young creative talent across Africa. It was set up by Vlisco in 2017 to learn about the aspirations of young Africans, to understand the way they see printed textiles in their own contemporary culture and to provide knowledge and opportunity where possible. Currently Vlisco&co is a start-up business focused on printed textiles and fashion, in collaboration with young creative talents across Africa.
As an all-round design support you offer creative support to the creative team of Vlisco&co. You will prepare designs digitally for production and assist the team on all-round design developments. You will do this in such a way that they correspond to the vision and signature of Vlisco&co and within the given deadlines.
Inspired by Africa, influenced by Indonesian Batik, designed in the Netherlands, Vlisco’s history and design style is a multicultural mixture of beauty and industrial craftsmanship. Founded in 1846, Vlisco is one of the world’s most dynamic fabric design companies with a reputation for surprising creativity. To work for Vlisco is to work in a company with one of the world’s biggest textile archives and with processes that honour old-fashioned craftsmanship, still in the factories of Helmond.
