The environmental impact of the textile/fashion industry has driven conservation and sustainability to the forefront. We must re-think our approach to resources and choose methods that conserve and sustain our precious planet. As we witness the pollution caused by traditional textile production, we must find sustainable solutions for the future. Transitioning to Digital Textile Printing, which is energy efficient and allows for a wider utilization of resource sensitive substrates, is the logical and ethical evolution for the textile industry. That is why from day one we've been committed to digital printing and its environmentally green production methods. To put it simply, we exist to showcase a new way of printing and production - one that's uses less water, less energy, and produces less pollution while still garnering high-quality results. We consider environmental impact in every step of our process and are proud to offer sustainable printing methods that allow you to have a cleaner supply chain. From using water-soluble inks to printing on recyclable fabrics and diligently recycling our waste, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and helping pave the way to revolutionize the textile industry.
HOW WE'RE SUSTAINABLE
We Use Less Water!
We print Digitally, which means we use significantly less water than conventional printing methods. To put it into perspective, ink dispersion for digital printing is measured in milliliters as opposed to the liters used with traditional methods. (DEFRA 2017) Digital Textile Printing has been estimated to have saved over 40 billion liters of water worldwide in 2018. Imagine if the textile industry transitioned to digital printing worldwide, we could save close to 2 trillion liters of water annually.
We Conserve Energy!
Our Digital printers use approximately 140 watts of energy per yard, while traditional analog printing methods use roughly 460 watts per yard. This 63% energy saving allows our studio to spearhead clean textile production that, if adopted worldwide, could reduce the power use of the textile industry by 900 gigawatts. (DEFRA 2017)
We Reduce Pollution!
The sad reality is that conventional textile printing produces large volumes of polluted water that end up contaminating local water tables. Unlike liquid intense process such as rotary and screen printing, digital printing uses virtually no water.
