Velvet Jet, the textile ink division of Bordeaux Digital PrintInk has received the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) approval.

“GOTS is recognised as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres and treatments,” Bordeaux informed in a press release.

“It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well,” it said in the press release.

“Velvet Jet's GOTS certification provides yet another assurance that its pigment ink are also the most ecological choice, while maintaining high quality characteristics,” the company added.

With its GOTS seal, this allergenic-free, water based and safe to use ink, assures it is the most ecological ink to use for digital textile printing.

“In addition, with its single pretreatment to all types of fabrics there is no post treatment required, no need to steam and wash post printing, thus there are no wash and dry cycles,” Bordeaux stated.

“As a result there is a tremendous reduction in electricity and water consumption and the entire process is shortened,” the company observed.

According to Bordeaux, Velvet jet's rub and wash resistance are high even without any pretreatment to the fabric.

“Velvet Jet's pigment ink simplifies the complexity of the current digital textile printing,” Guy Evron, marketing director at Velvet Jet said.

“With the latest GOTS certification, we are also providing the assurance to our customers that the use of our inks will benefit the environment and allow products to be marked as organic,” Evron too added. (AR)
