How do I care for my YANGA items?

Wax prints and Batiks are best washed by hand in cool water. However, YANGA can also be washed in the washing machine at 30 degrees with similar colours. We recommend that you wash sparingly and only when needed.


What is the difference between African wax print and batik?

African wax print: wax print, also known as Ankara, Holland wax or Dutch print, is a printed fabric made through wax resistant technique. It is usually printed on 100% cotton and features bright colours and interesting patterns that are often unique and limited. Unlike other patterned fabrics, genuine the intensity of Ankara fabrics doesn’t change that much depending on whether or not you look at the front or the back.

Batik: sometimes referred to as tie and dye, this fabric is handmade using fabric dyes in a method called tie and die as the name suggested. They are handmade and are unique - no two patterns are the same. 

The major difference between Batik and Ankara is the patterns that are created. Although Ankara prints can be made by hand, they are typically produced on a large scale by textile machines while Batiks are handmade.
