Vlisco has been designing and manufacturing characteristic fabrics, which are popular among African women, since 1846. The iconic Dutch textile company is known for its colourful batik fabrics which are produced in Helmond. For over 170 years, Vlisco has created more than 350,000 original textile designs. Many of these designs have become cultural treasures, bestowed with special names and meanings by the merchants of Central and West Africa. The rich history forms the basis of the strong Vlisco brand which needs to be handled with care.

Challenges

The largest market for Vlisco is the African market, especially the West-African region. The company rolls out collections centrally but uses different marketing campaigns per region. These centrally controlled campaigns have a regional character to overcome cultural differences. To preserve the carefully build brand name, brand consistency on all created materials is a must. 

Wishes
  • A layout module where employees and Vlisco retailers can draw up their own materials without loss of brand identity characteristics;
  • An approval flow in which the marketing department at the head office can always run a final check on the submitted documents.
