Book series to highlight era of digital print at ITMA

The Textile Solution Center (TSC), centre of excellence founded in Como (Italy) by Epson and For.Tex to promote digital textile printing worldwide, will present at ITMA 2015 the book series 'Beyond the Silk Road. The Textile Industry in the Era of Digital Print', it said in a press release.

The project has been ideated by the Textile Solution Center Advisory Board, a group of experts that brings together trade associations, representatives of industries based in Como and surroundings, and academics, in order to delineate the state-of-the-art of the textile industry, while at the same time presenting its evolution as linked to the introduction of digital printing in the production field.

Pietro Roncoroni, President of the Textile Solution Center Advisory Board, said, “With the advent of digital technology, over the past 15 years, it has seen a dramatic change, the significance of which has not only determined the transformation of the whole manufacturing system but, first and foremost, it has meant the rise of new opportunities that have revolutionized the dynamics of benchmark areas such as fashion, clothing, design and accessories. In this context, Italy has played a decisive role, with Como's 'textile district' coming first: thanks to the collaboration of all the industry professionals, here in what we could term the 'Digital Textile Valley,' the shift towards digital printing is now a reality. Realizing this, we have decided to publish a work that would take stock of the on-going transformation. “

The series will consist of single issues dedicated to the main themes relating to the process of digital textile printing, aiming at highlighting its advantages while, at the same time, attempting to clarify the more complex and problematic aspects. The book series will be published in two languages, English and Italian, and distributed internationally; it will also be available for download on the Textile Solution Center website, the release said.

Titled “Scenarios and leading characters”, the first issue of the book series “Beyond the Silk Road. The Textile Industry in the Era of Digital Print” is mainly informative. It presents a general overview of the digital textile industry through the reading of available data and market trends as well as through a general analysis of its productive and technological sides.

The subsequent issues will focus more specifically on technical aspects, with detailed explorations of the various stages of fabric processing – from the pre-treatment and printing to the after-treatment processes and finishing – but also on more general themes related to the impact on the ongoing transformation within the textile industry of the adoption of digital printing technology. To do so, the TSC will work in cooperation with universities, research institutes and trial centres. (SH)
