- Curator's comments
- 'Fancy prints are cheaper to produce and buy, but their designs often imitate the wax prints. They are printed on one side only by engraved rollers or printing screens. These cloths often feature photographic images making them a popular choice for commemorating or promoting important social political or cultural events.
Both wax and fancy print cloths are bought at market and given to tailors to make clothes worn by men, women or children.’
