The Gift from My Father…




They are finally here; the cute and cool wax print canvas shoes that is made in Spain from the original wax print fabric my father gave me this Christmas, brought from his homeland, The Ivory Coast.

This has been such a fun and refreshing project to me, especially since the shoes were received so well by you -almost sold out before they landed in our stock yesterday!

My father is in Africa at the moment so I´m arranging that he and his friend will buy a little more fabric before he returns to Europe. I thought it was a shame that so many of you did not get the chance to get your size. More details will follow…

    Hi Floor, thank you so much for the link! I knew that a lot of the original wax print fabric is produced in Holland, some in Ghana and some in the Ivory coast (besides China and other places in Asia). I just found it so cute that my father made his own personal selection on his last trip to Africa. On the other hand we have had many requests on the shoes already so when our next delivery from my father runs out it could surely be interesting to look into the selection from vlisco! Thanks again many times. Best, Yvonne
