This paper will discuss the use of devore printing as an additional design feature to ink jet printed fabrics. Ink jet printed fabrics are an ideal basis for bespoke fabrics to be generated in small-scale productions. To begin with this paper will discuss the production of ink jet printed fabrics in repeat using textile CAD software. The original design will include all embellishments as part of the original repeat; as an overlay.
Before the application of a devore effect, the ink jet printed fabric will need to be finished conventionally, then the shrinkage which occurs can be taken into consideration and the overlay modified in repeat.
To conclude the paper will discuss the extension of this process into other possible methods of embellishment such as overprinting and resist techniques, which can be used with ink jet printing onto textiles. These techniques will display alternative methods for producing high quality customised fabrics.
