Digital Printing

Fabrics woven in the factory arrive at the printing premises, to have their final look, with an endless spectrum of colours with in the artisan hands of our design team.

After agriculture, textile production is the world’s biggest water polluter, mostly because of dyeing and printing processes. The treatment, dyeing and rinsing of textiles also impacts the air and soil. Over 2,000 chemicals including benzidine and toluidine, ammonia, various salts, chlorine and heavy metals are used in a miscellany of dyes, defoamers, bleaches, detergents and brighteners. Textile production leads to dozens of toxic chemicals getting dumped into the world’s waterways, including formaldehyde, chlorine, lead and mercury. Nitrogen and sulphur oxides are emitted from textile boilers, and although textile waste ideally should be recycled, too much of it still ends up in landfill. Technology that mitigates some of the negatives in the textile equation should be welcomed, not least by big brands who want to improve their social and environmental performance.

Digital printing is the perfect answer for all harmful outcomes of the colouring processes in textile industry. Waste water is reduced by 80 – 90 % regarding the conventional techniques. Digital printing consumes less ink and no excess ink is dumped to wastewater. Equipment for digital printing systems uses significantly less electricity, thus saving energy and a much less carbon footprint. The digital printing is the key to a much more sustainable world.
