Sustainable Textile Printing with Kornit Digital
Kornit Allegro, the world’s first single step roll-to-roll digital textile printing system, is revolutionizing textile production while still enabling creative use of design and color.
For the very first time in New York City, Kornit Digital will present its all-in-one direct-to-fabric printer, the Kornit Allegro, at the Fashion Institute of Technology during New York Textile Month.
The Kornit Allegro will run live demonstrations from September 13 through September 18 in the lobby of FIT’s main building. Students and industry professionals attending New York Textile Month will have the unique and exciting opportunity to see the Allegro printing live.
In addition to the live demonstration, Kornit Digital will have experts present to educate attendees on textile printing technologies, focusing on the sustainability of Kornit’s digital process in FIT’s Great Hall on September 13th from 4:00 – 7:00 pm. As the textile industry continues to be challenged about environmental concerns, this presentation will provide attendees with insights as to how the Kornit Allegro answers the demands for more sustainable printing processes.
The Kornit Allegro incorporates the company’s NeoPigment inks and prints onto multiple fabric types with 100% sustainable results. Its integrated fixation process removes the need for pre-treatment, steaming or washing, making it a truly environmentally friendly solution that meets the most rigorous environmental regulations, including OekoTex Standard 100 and GOTS approval.
Kornit Digital and FIT have successfully partnered for several years on a digital textile design project with the Senior Textile/Surface designs students. Students were encouraged to create original designs printed on the Allegro and were subsequently judged based on theme, marketability, and use of digital technology.
