The printing of textiles, when approached as an artistic discipline, offers interesting and rewarding opportunities for expression.

In this book, written as a practical manual, readers will find detailed information about the history of textile printing, the most common fabrics used for printing, and basic instructions for printing on textiles in a studio setting.

The technical processes are carefully explained and include examples that make each process easier for beginners to understand. Following an introduction, the book's chapters cover these topics:

  • A Brief History of Textile Printing
  • Textiles for Printing
  • Materials and Tools
  • Technical Processes, including Block Printing, Serigraphy, Devor and bleaching, Batik, and Serti painting with guta pigments
  • Step-by-Step instructions for six projects: a child's dress, a shawl with gradated colors, a lamp shade, personalized denim clothing, a curtain with Devor, and an armchair decorated with gutta
  • A Gallery illustrating finished objects
  • A Glossary and Bibliography
Textile Printing is a practical and informative book for textile design students, professionals in the industry, and dedicated amateurs. Colour photos on most pages--hundreds of illustrations.
