“Printing” on fabric refers to applying coloured patterns and designs. In a printed fabric, colour is added to the fibre such that it is not affected by washing or friction. Usually on printed fabrics the outline of a design is defined by its outer side. The design does not penetrate to the reverse side of the cloth. In transparent fabrics, the design is visible on the reverse side. Do not get confused between a pattern and a woven design. The colours which are used for printing are fixed to the fibre through resins. There are different approaches of printing which include direct, discharge, resist, block and static printing to name a few.
Care and maintenance
Presently, tie dye, batik and digital printing are very popular. In digital printing, micro-sized droplets of dye are placed on the fabric through an inject print head. Maintaining printed cotton fabric is not difficult. Make sure that you wash it in cold water and if you opt for a machine wash, ensure that the cycle is moderate. Dry the fabric in shade to avoid fading.
