Creativity. Innovation. Sustainability
The E.Volution philosophy: the new generation of textile printing
Innovative and revolutionary already in its name, the E.Volution philosophy is Miroglio Textile’s new philosophy that combines latest generation technology, environmental responsibility and ultimate creativity. A new way of conceiving textile printing where the experience and know-how of Miroglio Textile merge with its ability to look towards the future. But what is the E.Volution philosophy? The E.Volution philosophy is simplicity and convenience, the perfect combination between the vibrant intensity of colours, high printing definition and the balanced use of colour and of intelligent and innovative technologies with low environmental impact. It is an integrated system that unites creative design to a full array of technologically advanced printing options which may be applied to an even wider portfolio of fabrics (polyester, cotton, viscose, stretch fabrics, TencelTM and many other refined blends). The E.Volution philosophy provides the certainty of excellent printing performances capable of delivering tailor-made responses to the different needs of the market.
The ingredients in the success of the E.Volution philosophy
The printing process on polyester uses new, latest generation digital printers (including a new MS Lario) producing the highest standards of product quality: ultra sharp designs and colours, endless styling solutions and customization taken to new extremes.
The choice of inks has been dictated by attention to innovation and the company’s commitment to reach beyond pre-set standards.
This has led to the partnership with Sensient Imaging Technology of the Global Ink Group, part of the US multinational Sensient Technologies. World leader in digital ink-jet printing solutions, Sensient Imagine Technology has created a range of universal inks exclusively for Miroglio Textile, which achieve high quality performance using much less water than traditional inks.
The quality of product and service offered by Miroglio Textile has been consolidated in over 60 years on the market. Over recent years, the company has chosen to undertake various innovative and creative projects. A good example is “Metri d’Arte”, in which artists from all over the world specialising in various creative disciplines are invited to work alongside Miroglio Textile’s own creative team in the company’s style office. This accumulation between art and textiles has given rise to new ideas and exclusive solutions.
The important LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) studies performed by ICEA (Institute for Ethical and Environmental Certification) on E.Volution’s technological range including polyester fabrics demonstrate how this philosophy can rely upon strong sustainability credentials.
– WATER (from 47% to 90% per linear metre of printed fabric)
– CO2 emissions reduced by up to 25%
– ENERGY (up to 37% saving, again per linear metre of printed fabric).
