In the 50 years since Printex Limited was established as a textile company in Accra, Ghana, it has transitioned from a small family-owned mill to one of the regions most respected African print producers. Today we have over 500 local employees.
We believe in building partnerships with local textile designers and leading fashion creatives. Our textile collections are made for the upwardly mobile, and inspirational African woman and man looking to add flair to their personal style.
Printex African prints are a combination of art, cultural inspirations, and interpretations of Africa’s landscape, and wildlife. We use bold shapes and patterns combined with seasonal colors to dress our customers for every occasion. From the more simple patterns for daily wear, to more intricate designs for fashion runways and glamour pages. There is a Printex print for everyone.
Our prints first start as concepts from textile designers which are later turned into decorative patterns applied to cotton fabric by synchronized rotary screen methods and tubular screens. Print paste is distributed inside the tubular screen and applied on to the fabric which is pressed between the screen and the printing blanket. The product then undergoes a variety of finishes that end in bales of colourful African designs.
These designs famously known under the signature Printex ‘Maaso Me She Bi’ are synonymous with quality throughout West Africa. Our range of fabrics are exported to Nigeria, Cote D’Ivoire, Mali, Benin, Togo, Burkina Faso, Gambia, Niger, Angola and as far as South Africa and Zambia. We are at the forefront of African fashion and we will continue to introduce new ranges of textiles to the market.
