CMYUK collaborate with designer Hazel Carruthers for SDUK

CMYUK X Avalana Design: A creative collab for SDUK.

CMYUK and the talented designer Hazel Carruthers work together to demonstrate the powerful combination of talent and technology at SDUK.

As a new generation welcomes the creative freedom offered by digital printing technology, CMYUK will showcase an exciting exhibit at this years SDUK. Working with Hazel Caruthers of Avalana Design, to preview her inspiring collection of digitally printed fabrics and wallpapers, alongside customised upholstered furniture.

CMYUK will showcase the new technologies that are disrupting the textile sector to bring creative opportunities to the design community, and those which offer exceptional growth opportunities for PSP’s.

Millennial manufacturing techniques demand flexible production processes, and at Sign and Digital this year, CMYUK will preview a snapshot of their growing textile offering for the print industry: software, materials, consumables and digital textile print technologies for all applications including Fashion and Interiors.

Digital Printing innovations are set to drive the digital textile sector into double digit growth over the next few years, and it’s clear that digital technology offers the PSP, the talented designer or printing entrepreneur a myriad of exciting possibilities for business growth, alongside sustainable efficient manufacturing alternatives.

With a growing requirement for speed to market in order to meet the demands of the Millennial consumer, the print industry must now deliver “just in time” manufacturing.


“My brand Avalana uses digital printing methods across the entire collection of products that have been created for the interior and gift markets. I use digital technology because the results for achieving intricate details and tonal colour are unrivalled. I also stand by the sustainability aspects and economic benefits of using digital printing methods” Hazel Carruthers: AVALANA DESIGN

“CMYUK firmly believe that we are about to witness a huge shift towards localised manufacturing. High quality, affordable, digital textile print technologies now enable PSP’s to service Fashion and Décor clients utilising a print on demand business model, providing efficient and sustainable manufacturing options to the UK’s manufacturing industry and its vibrant community of Surface Pattern designers for Fashion, Home Furnishings, and Interior Design.

CMYUK is at the heart of this growing sector of the Textile industry. Building a strong UK community of Digital Textile Printers, whilst supporting the creative community to offer the UK an exciting industry and future. Collaboration is the key to creative growth, working with, and supporting Hazel has been a rewarding experience, and a first for CMYUK. The growth of our industry relies on the next generation and we look forward to facilitating a new chapter for the UK Textile Industry.”
