The History Of Handprinted Cotton Fabric How To
Make It
  • Handprinted cotton fabric was born in India,
    where cotton grew spontaneously. The lower costs
    did not have the means to access fabrics such as
    silk or linen, nor could they have many garments.
  • In this way, they come up with an economical and
    simple way to print clothes, waterproof.
  • These printed fabrics reach the West during the
    17th century, causing a true commercial
    revolution. These are colorful and cheap fabrics
    that force textile manufacturers to react quickly
    since silk or other fabrics cannot compete with
    the cheaper printed cotton.

  • These prints also had a strong Persian and
    Chinese influence.
  • Women discover in these cotton garments an
    economical and comfortable way to dress in
    summer, which allows them to have a variety of
    models.
  • This greatly drives demand.
  • In the beginning, in India, the highest quality
    fabrics were hand-painted. As in all processes,
    technology evolves over the centuries, perfecting
    printing techniques.

What do you need for handprinted cotton fabric?
  • PreparationThe golden rule in textile printing
    is that a well-prepared fabric is a fabric that
    guarantees half the way of printing. This saying
    indicates the importance of good preparation for
    the production of high-quality printed fabrics.
    The goals of print preparation are clean, flat,
    smooth, uniform fabrics that are instantly
    absorbent. The preparation includes degumming,
    scouring, bleaching, and mercerizing.

  • FiberThe type of fiber and its properties
    determine the selection of the dye since these
    are specific for each type of fiber. For example,
    cotton fabric can be printed with direct, vat,
    and reactive dyes, but not with dyes designed for
    nylon or polyester. Pigments can be used in any
    type of fiber because they do not have a natural
    affinity for any and must be adhered or glued to
    the surface of the fabric or fiber.
  • ThreadThe type of yarn construction influences
    the type of textile print. The level of twist,
    hairiness, luster, and uniformity all affect the
    brilliance, uniformity, and depth of color. Also,
    high twist yarns resist the penetration of print
    paste, and both coarse and fine yarns will print
    differently.

  • ClothThe properties of fabric constructions
    affect both process and quality of the print. For
    example, fabrics are generally easier to print
    than knits due to the latter's instability.
    Fabrics with flat surfaces (such as sheeting) are
    easier to print than fabrics with any type of
    pile or curl (such as bath towels).

  • How can you print?Handprinted cotton fabric can
    be successfully printed through various methods
    including rotary screens, flatbed screens,
    engraved rollers, digital inkjet, and transfer
    printing.
  • Printed Fabric DryingAfter the dye paste has
    been applied, the fabric must be dried and also
    cured or steamed to react with the paste. For
    continuous drying, a branch, belt dryer, or
    zigzag dryer is used.
  • Fixation of Printed FabricDepending on the
    layout of the printing plant, the fabric may go
    through a fixing process immediately after drying
    or it may be held for later fixing. The type of
    colorant and production issues determine the
    fixing method. Methods include atmospheric
    steaming, high temperature steaming, and baking.
