For those that don’t know, the fabric industry is moving more and more to using digital printing for printed patterned fabrics. Recently we have gotten questions about digital printing in general, and how it differs from traditional printed fabrics.
I was going through old images recently, and it was really amazing looking back at the last twenty years of toile fabrics that we have had. Virtually every company printed toiles. While some were based on the traditional French patterns, many companies developed their own patterns. I decided to dust off these patterns for people to enjoy!
But, first a bit of history! And the history of toile fabrics is a complex intertwining of politics, science, and religion.
