Durham, North Carolina-based Spoonflower has deployed the groundbreaking Kornit Allegro, an entire digital textile printing line in a single step.
Rosh-Ha`Ayin, Israel, October 10, 2013 – Kornit Digital, producer of industrial and commercial digital printers for the textile industry, has partnered with Spoonflower (www.spoonflower.com) to install the Kornit Allegro roll-to-roll printing system. The Kornit Allegro defies traditional industry processes with its groundbreaking single-step digital textile printing solution and revolutionary NeoPigment™ process.
The Kornit Allegro provides an unprecedented color gamut with the ability to print any design, in any number of color combinations, at any level of detail. Users can print multiple short runs in one roll, on multiple fabric types, with no minimum length requirement.
Located in Durham, North Carolina, Spoonflower allows individuals to design, print and sell their own custom-designed fabric, wallpaper, decals and gift wrap. The Spoonflower marketplace hosts the largest collection of independent fabric designers in the world. “Our mission is to make custom fabric accessible to designers, creative individuals and small businesses all over the world,” explains Stephen Fraser, co-founder of Spoonflower. “We are thrilled that Kornit has developed a printing platform that can substantially increase our production capacity while preserving Spoonflower’s commitment to employ the most eco-friendly digital textile solutions available.”
“Kornit and Spoonflower share a similar vision for the textile industry,” says Omer Kulka, Director of Kornit Digital’s wide format division. “Spoonflower understands the textile market, specifically customization and on-demand printing, extensively. They are the best representative of an entire market segment with an amazing and unlimited growth potential.” Similarly, Kornit has proven itself as the marketing leader in direct to garment digital printing for customization and ecommerce organizations. Bringing this expertise to the textile industry, with partners such as Spoonflower, is the next step in textile innovation.
Using the NeoPigment™ process at its core, the Kornit Allegro is a true stand-alone solution and an entire production line applied in one step. With the capability of printing on multiple fabric types with the 100 percent biodegradable NeoPigment™ ink, the Kornit Allegro solution eliminates the need for energy and water-consuming polluting processes – making it the most eco-friendly solution in the textile printing industry. Kornit’s NeoPigment™ inks meet stringent environmental regulations, including Oeko-Tex Standard 100 GOTS V3.0, and offers increased efficiency over dye-based printing solutions.
