The voice of silk

Watch your tie. Or curtains, tablecloths, wallpaper, a summer blouse …
Watch the fabric and decoration drawing it. It is not embroidered: it is printed.
So far, everything is trivial. What is not trivial is the story behind the procedure to actually do the printing, and ensure that when your tie is stained, the color of the stain is removed by washing, but the decorations are bright and clear. A story that we have chosen an exceptional storyteller, someone who has been building machines for printing textiles for more than sixty years: MS Italy.

The history of textile printing begins, as far as we know, nearly two thousand years ago, China, with scraps of silk flowers painted in three colors, around 200 AD, and reached the Mediterranean, Egypt, as two hundred years later. But Asia will anyway remain the undisputed master of textile printing for several centuries, with Indian silks and Chinese considered as objects of great value in European markets. These printed fabrics are obtained with carved wooden blocks used as stamps and thus pressed when dipped in color on the canvas. Efficient Technology never remains the same spot, and it is in the Middle Ages that we find the first examples of printing similar textile made in Europe, although on fabrics, particularly with dyes of much lower quality, which are an obstacle to dissemination large market that washing the printed fabric is impossible, for fear that the colors run. This limits its application to tapestries and other decorative objects, which does not require washing.

This situation will last for several centuries: it will be the French who finally back to their country of origin their Indian colonies, the techniques of printing on fabrics that are resistant to washing, but not before the late seventeenth century. Just a few decades later, there will be no European country left where textiles are not printed.
But there is still a long way to go: that these beautiful printed fabrics are, they require too long to do, and the superb skill in aligning the Tripitaka printing after printing, so that uninterrupted imperfections appear in the figure. This invention makes Thomas Bell in 1785, a true revolution: it is a printing machine based on cylinders (a show that we are familiar, but a completely new and unique for the time) through which the fabric is pushed during printing with the pattern engraved on the bottles themselves. In addition to allowing for highly accurate and detailed graphics, in a maximum of six colors (an extraordinary achievement in itself), the machine Bell conquers the field for his astonishing speed: in a workday of ten hours, it can print in one color of about ten thousand meters of fabric. This is the passage from the perspective of a craftsman of an industry, as a Functionally and economically. And an industry that is becoming increasingly demanding, both in the early twentieth century a new technology, a still largely used, is developed: that of the screen, where color is pressed onto the fabric through silk screens pre-treated, and composing the final image on the canvas.

Our guide in this journey through the centuries also tells us the latest technology, the MS is specialized in Italy as a manufacturer of the machine: that of digital textile printing. Exactly as in the passage of the offset printing digital printing for paper, textile digital printing technology has enabled real revolution both in terms of cost (no need for screens specialized for each position, it is economical to print, even in low) and an ecological point of view (no special solvents and reagents, which are essential in the screen and highly polluting, are required)
