The printed fabrics are UV-resistant, with excellent wash fastness and an attractive hand feel. With full support for mass customisation and personalisation business models, the Kornit Allegro has a robust construction and compact footprint that makes it the ideal solution for production houses that need to print direct to virtually all types of fabric.
