Epson recently teamed up with the renowned Japanese fashion designer Kansai Yamamoto to print designs featured at a major international fashion event.
Using specially developed inks, Epson printed around 30 of the designer’s creations on its digital textile printers, using, in the prcess, more than 1,000 square metres of textiles such as cotton, polyester and silk. The creations, combining traditional Japanese designs and ultra-modern styles, were printed largely on two Epson printers, one of which was the Epson SurePress FP-30160.
The Japanese designer, who began his career in London more than 40 years ago, approached Epson after seeing examples of its printed fabrics and being impressed by the company’s innovative technology and its ability to blend various colours and patterns to create highly original and artistically beautiful designs. In turn, Epson felt honoured to have received a commission from such a world-class designer and to have met his requirements against a tight deadline. The success of this project will help drive Epson’s textile printer business forward.
