Curtain fabric is a significant part of our home textile print production. We have specialised in printing on Trevira CS and other proof-treated fabric, which are not only to serve the aesthetic purpose for the end product, but also has one or more essential functional qualities.
Home textiles are not only curtains. We print on carpets, upholstery, fabric for pillows, teacloths, towels, table mats and tablecloths – there are almost no limits.
Vivid homes thanks to digital print
Home textile is a trend oriented market and with a long perspective too. The so-called megatrends grant the producers and designers guidance as well as creative freedom. The popularity of prints in those megatrends is increasing. Well, yes of course!
The digital textile printing technology is a treasure chest of detailed graphics, unlimited colour palettes and photographic reproduction. Beautiful prints of deer, owls and polar bears would not have been an option 15 years ago. Floral prints on unlimited repeat lengths make our pillows and carpets unique and bring nature into the living room.
Home textiles of polyester are strong products
Polyester is a very strong synthetic material. Its useful and durable qualities make it a preferred choice for home textiles.
Polyester is particularly suitable for print. We use the transfer printing technique that gives the best possibilities of managing the colorants and create a beautiful and very durable result.
Home textiles for the contract market
In large building works of hotels, offices and public facilities, everything has to be well thought out from the beginning. Detailed tendering sets the boundaries and the grand picture is essential for the planning.
A curtain is much more than a piece of beautiful fabric of the right length. Considerations of draping of the fabric and perhaps the colourfastness and resistance usage and light exposure are essential. Carpets must withstand wear and tear and should be comfortable as well. Upholstery should be cleanable without losing colour and functionality.
These are all important considerations for us to understand. We profit from a profound dialogue with architects, manufacturers and suppliers. We keep getting smarter on materials to assist our product development.
Transfer print keeps the quality of the fabric
We run an extensive quality control, which starts at the fabric supplier. We make sure that the fabric is prepared for print. If the fabric has been further pre-treated to provide the fabric with a certain function, we have thorough testing procedures that determines how the print will react on the fabric in question. The transfer technique is gentle to the fabric. Neither the printing process, nor the ink reduces the qualities of the fabric.
Consumers want sustainable products
Sustainable products have become a matter of course for us consumers. Obviously. Our knowledge of the vulnerability of our environment and scary facts of harmful additives increase requirements in all parts of textile refinement.
In our printing niche, we are continuously focused on doing better with as little impact on the environment as possible.
