Woman Suffers Serious Skin Rashes After Wearing Vlisco Cloth
A Canadian woman was rushed to the 37 Police Hospital Thursday morning after suffering serious skin rashes when she wore a dress made out of Vlisco fabric.
Emily Wettlaufer, the woman in question, narrating her ordeal to our correspondent at 37 said this is the first time something of that sort has happened to her. According to her, she came across an advert of Vlisco on TV; therefore became interested in trying-out their fabric.
She however said she was cautioned by a friend not to opt for Vlisco since the quality of their fabrics is low.
“My friend advised me not to buy any Vlisco product because their fabrics are not up to standard. She was told me how she develops itches anytime she puts on any Vlisco-made dress. I paid no heed and went ahead to buy it.”
Emily continued, “Right after wearing the dress, my body started itching me. I thought it would stop after few minutes but it became severe till I fainted and was rushed to the hospital.”
Speaking to Doctor Asante of 37 Police Hospital, he said Emily’s rash is caused by some chemicals used when producing the fabric.
“Emily is not the only victim. I’ve had several people come in here with similar problems.”
Doctor Asante advised the general public to be cautious when buying any the fabric in question.
Mr. Opoku, Head of Production for Vlisco, refused to comment on the issue when ScrewLife.Com got in touch with him saying, “If your skin is not good don’t blame it on our cloth.”
