Rediscover The Beauty Of The Turkish Towel
Printing on fabric is an old art since ceturies. The oldest known fabric printing is originated in China almost 4 thousand 5 hundred years ago. Since those thousand years coloring fabrics changed in many different ways and styles.
The main idea of coloring, painting or printing on fabric is different than using colored yarn to weave. Was not easy to make a design on fabric by weaving. At that time weavers decide to weave first and reflect their ideas on fabric. This was something like painting.
Actually painting or printing the patterns on fabric is the oldest painting art before the canvas painting.
Woodblock printing is known in India since 1600's. This process is applying color on fabric by using some wooden blocks. Wooden blocks are carved with some patterns or designs. Transferring the pattern or design with the wooden blocks was easy and faster than hand paint. The result was always the same even any other person uses the blocks.
In time, printing on fabric changed. The idea is almost the same with any book or paper printing. Nowadays textile industry have many different printing ways. Here are some samples:
Engraved roller printing
Direct to garment digital printing
Printing with inkjet printers
Sublimation transfer printing
Heat transfer or thermal transfer printing
