Epson has chosen a textile design developed by Evgenia Guliev, a young student studying at Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences in Germany, to showcase at the upcoming Heimtextil event.
The design was especially selected to demonstrate the quality and flexibility of its digital textile printing technology at Heimtextil (Stand C10, Hall 6.0, 10-13 January 2017, Messe Frankfurt).
Epson works closely with textile designers and colleges around the world to explore the power of digital printing within the fashion and décor industries and students from France, Germany, Italy and the UK were invited to submit designs for Epson’s ‘Design for Living 2017’ Award.
Evgenia is studying M.Sc. Textile Design and her bold, contemporary design was chosen as the overall winner. For Heimtextil, Epson has reproduced her design as a range of soft furnishings and homeware products using its wide-format SureColor SC-F dye-sublimation and Monna Lisa direct-to-textile pigment printers.
Visitors will see a coordinated collection of curtains, lamps, furniture, cushions, tableware and wallpaper and – all produced using Epson digital printers. Even the special-edition Monna Lisa direct-to-textile printer, which makes its debut at the show, will be customised with Evgenia’s design.
