A design, innovation and prototyping laboratory for the garment industry, called Indumental, was recently inaugurated in Mexico’s Yucatan state, the first of its kind in the country offering tools and services to help fashion brands grow. Its main attraction is the nation’s first digital textile printing machine for creating original fabric designs.

The Israeli-built eco-friendly printer with biodegradable inks will use 80 litres of water per month, said state governor Mauricio Vila Dosal.

The facility also undertakes market research for designers to keep in touch with trends, according to a report from the state.

Indumental was funded with 17 million pesos from both the state and the central governments, the National Council of Science and Technology (Conacyt) and the private sector. It was built, fittingly, on Periférico Avenida Maquiladoras, named for the assembly factories that have dotted Yucatan’s landscape for decades.

The lab aims to strengthen the capacities and competitiveness of small and medium-sized local businesses.

Indumental puts Yucatan at the forefront in the clothing industry, which helps projects such as the Tekit Guayabera Fair, the governor added.
