Affordable sustainable aesthetics? Yes please! A new digital print technique reduces use of water and colour. And it’s cost-efficient too!

AESTHETICS AND SUSTAINABILITY GO HAND IN HAND
Printing on clothes is expensive and has a negative impact on the environment. In close collaboration with Danish fashion brand Baum und Pferdgarten, textile designer Kirstine Dahl Hammershøj has created a new, digital print technique, which is cheap and reduces the use of water and colours. Inspired by old black and white photography, she has created a series of textile samples, which shows that aesthetics and sustainability indeed go hand in hand.

ÆSTETIK OG BÆREDYGTIGHED GÅR HÅND I HÅND
Print på tøj er både dyrt og belastende for miljøet. I tæt samspil med det danske tøjmærke Baum und Pferdgarten har tekstildesigner Kirstine Dahl Hammershøj arbejdet med en ny, digital printteknik, der både er billig og reducerer brugen af vand og farvestoffer. Hun har fundet inspiration i ældre, abstrakte s/h-fotos og skabt en serie tekstilprøver, der viser, at det æstetiske og bæredygtige kan gå hånd i hånd.
