This Java pattern was launched because of Mandela’s immense popularity following his release from prison in 1990 and his leading role afterwards in the negotiations for multi-racial democracy. The framework of the design, however, was designed in 1989 to suit different portraits, from Charles de Gaulle to Pope John Paul II.
This design is no longer popular in Nigeria because Mandela’s ex-wife Winny has Nigerian roots and Nigerians do not accept the divorce. This explains why this design was taken off the market.

Java is characterised by special colour effects in the printed areas: colour gradients. Patterns with this effect are called Maxi Prints.
