Mimaki is set to showcase its latest textile printing technology at Heimtextil 2015. The international trade fair for home and contract textiles takes place at Messe Frankfurt, Germany from January 14th to 17th, 2015, where Mimaki will demonstrate its expertise and market-leading solutions for this sector on stand G15 in Hall 4.0.
“Huge technological advancements have brought about a major leap in the quality of digitally printed textiles and with the ability to produce samples, short run and custom textiles much more cost effectively, the digital proposition is becoming increasingly attractive to designers, retailers and marketers. Many major retailers are using digitally printed textiles to differentiate themselves by producing really eye-catching limited edition pieces,” explains Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing EMEA at Mimaki Europe.
“These digital print technology developments open up some really exciting market opportunities for designers throughout the industry, and I believe that this really is just the start of a revolution in the sector,” enthuses Horsten who continues; “We are on the cusp of a sea change, and Mimaki solutions are ready to meet today’s needs as well as adapt to new requirements as they arise. At Heimtextil, we’ll again be pushing the boundaries of innovation and creativity with a broad portfolio of solutions for high quality digital printing of textiles. We’re ready for whatever the future brings!”
Mimaki is Gold Sponsor of the European Digital Textile Conference where Horsten will discuss “Why the home textile sector will switch to digital” on Thursday, January 15th, in Hall 4.0 at 12:25 pm.
Horsten comments, “The home textile sector is just one of many expanding creative and commercial opportunities offered by digital printing. I look forward to discussing these opportunities with attendees, along with ways that businesses can ensure that they are at the forefront of this rapidly evolving sector.”
