The Story Behind The Fabric Used in Our Lore Target Skirt

This is our Lore Target Skirt and like most African print,  there is a story behind this beautiful classic print. When I was growing up, my mother had this classic print in her wardrobe. According to Vlisco (the makers of our fabric) ” the drawing on this skirt first appeared on the market in the 1960s and goes by many names, such as “Plaque-Plaque”, “Target”, and “Nsu Bura”, which means ‘water well’ in Ghana.” The Story behind the ‘water well’ is that when you throw a stone in water well, you can see a ripple effect. Basically, whatever you do in life, (whether good or bad) your actions will have an effect on everyone around you.
