This year too Epson will participate in Heimtextil, Frankfurt, on 8-11 January 2019. The company will present its offer for the home textile market to both operators in the sector and to visitors by creating a living room in partnership with Brochier, the prestigious brand of top of the range furnishing fabrics. Some furnishing items will be displayed in this setting. Sofa, armchairs, poufs, curtains and carpets have been made of fabrics printed by Monna Lisa, featuring the suggestive motif of the Utopian Philodendron, chosen from the companyâ€™s archive of furnishing fabrics. Beside this area, demos are provided by the printer SureColor SC-S80600, ideal, for instance, to print wallpaper, and by the printer SureColor SC-F9300 for sublimation textile printing, the ideal solution to personalise household items and to create 3D printed objects, such as plates, cutlery and vases.
â€œEpsonâ€™s printing solutions combine cutting edge technology, such as Epson PrecisionCore print heads, dedicated inks and precision mechanics, to meet the demands of a market that seeks a rapid and versatile approach even in the furnishing sector, says Giovanni Pizzamiglio, Direct To Fabric Sales & Marketing Director EMEAR & Americas â€“ As witnessed by our commitment to ensure ongoing development of inks and high quality printers, our goal is to become a strategic technological partner for high quality industrial textile printingâ€.
Ongoing commitment to enhance sustainability -Epsonâ€™s practical commitment to ensure sustainability, from the development of inkjet technology in the various application sectors to research on inks, is underscored by the Japanese companyâ€™s decision, in partnership with Brochier, to interpret the theme of Heimtextil 2019 - Toward Utopia â€“ with the motif of the Utopian Philodendron. The Philodendron is a tropical plant that is widely known for its capacity to adapt and filter many hazardous substances that are present in the environment, transforming them into oxygen, without however losing its typical harmonious shape and hues. The idea of this plant will help us pursue the utopian dream of functional beauty we would like to find in the future world.
This motif comes to life only with Monna Lisa digital textile printing. Besides a perfect colour yield, bright hues and a wealth of details, the Monna Lisa printer produces true copies of the original sketch.
â€œThis feature is crucial because the original drawing is often done by hand, using very particular techniques, which have to be reproduced on fabricâ€, says Davide Maspero, Commercial Director of Brochier. â€œMoreover, Monna Lisa has shown an excellent yield in the reproduction of techniques, such as pigments or glitter that could previously be produced only with traditional printing methodsâ€.
