Digital Textile Printing

Kornit Collaborates with Fashion Institute of Technology Students

‘Wearable Water’ designs produced on Allegro textile printer.




Kornit Digital posed its third annual challenge for students at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) to create designs for fabric produced on the company’s Allegro roll-to-roll printer. This year’s theme, “Wearable Water,” stressed “the importance of one of the earth’s largest and most important ecosystems: its oceans,” according to a release.

The Textile/Surface Design student winners are:

• Jihee Che, “The Sulawesi Sea: Save the Coral Reefs,” first place (left);

• Janisha Biyanwila, “Water: An Inconvenient Truth,” second place (below);

• Rachel McGuire, “Blended Bycatch,” third place (right);

• And Paige Leonard, honorable mention (below).

The designs were judged based on, according to the release, use of the challenge’s theme, sustainability, marketability, use of digital technology, and overall design aesthetics. The panel included Melissa Niederman (The Style Council), Tom Cody (Tom Cody Design), Joe Castaldo (The Style Council), and Nancy Fire (Design Works International), as well as Kornit’s Paul Borucki, Jim Manelski, and Marco Paul.



Kornit will feature the winning designs in its booth at the SGIA Expo in Las Vegas. Students from the Fashion Design department at FIT will now compete in the next stage of the challenge, using the winning textile designs to create finished garments.
