Embracing Sustainability with the Direct-to-Fabric Printer from the Future – The Epson Monna Lisa Series

The textile market has continued to expand at an unprecedented rate with the global industry projected to reach S$11.5 million in 2023. Fueled by the growing demand for more personalised and sustainable fabrics, the need for advanced printing solutions for a short cycle from factory to wardrobe has never been more crucial.

As the world of digital textile printing continues to evolve, the Epson Monna Lisa Direct-to-Fabric (DTF) printer stands out as a true game-changer. This cutting-edge printer combines advanced technology with innovative features to empower businesses and revolutionise the way fabrics are printed.

Sustainability with Epson Monna Lisa

Fast fashion has led to a significant increase in fabric waste, with approximately 20% of clothing produced annually going unsold. The Monna Lisa ML embraces on-demand printing by printing only what is needed and when it’s needed. By drastically reducing fabric waste, Monna Lisa offers a more sustainable approach to textile production.

The textile industry is known to be one of the largest consumers of water among all industries in the world. Comparative studies have shown that DTF printers from the Monna Lisa series, when compared to traditional rotary presses, significantly reduces water consumption by 27% and carbon footprint by up to 40%. This reduction not only benefits the environment by decreasing the volume of wastewater sent to treatment plants but also reduces the amount of energy required to heat process water.

Furthermore, the Monna Lisa series uses environmentally friendly inks – Acid, Reactive, Disperse, and Pigment. The inks hold the esteemed OEKO-TEX® ECO PASSPORT certification, a globally recognised standard for eco-friendly textile printing, while the Acid ink is Bluesign® approved and our Reactive, Acid, and Pigment inks proudly carry the GOTS approval from Ecocert1.
