Textile Printing is an art of coloring piece of simple cloth and transforming it into a piece of art that represents personal taste and style. Every print uniquely defines the cultures and person's taste.
The art of printing varies from culture to culture, generation to generation while most humans prefer the classic elegant repeat pattern of prints more aesthetic & soothing others prefer modern abstracts and solid color more to go with their desire.
In the end, it is the color in the core of a fiber placed by an artist contemplating and putting his thought in a thread.

What about the fibres in textile printing?

The fiber is set in the color of a correctly printed cloth, such that the washing and friction cannot influence them. The pattern contours may be tested if a fabric is torn or imprinted. The colors, often include organic & inorganic compounds that scatter with outstanding plasticity, and bonds efficiently with the fiber are used for printing. The pigments are often used widely for writing but are not necessarily colorants. Such colors, which are particularly immune to washing or dry cleaning, are bound to fabrics. The most common colors are pigments operate in light to medium shades. Pigments can crock or rub off when used for the application of dark colors. This question must be solved by improved resins, stronger pigments, or more powerful anti-crock agents. The cheap print is made of simple colors of methylated salts and tannic acids which is not suitable in the market these days.
Three Core textile printing methods

Resist printing

A resistant paste is printed on the textiles in this technique and then the color is applied to the fiber. The stain only affects certain pieces that the reactive paste does not protect. The
The resistant strain is removed after coloring.

Discharge printing

In this process, the material is lightly dyed and then printed using a chemical that destroys the color of the designed areas. The base color is also discarded and a new color is inserted. The inserted cloth is then completely stemmed and flushed. This strategy is actually in decline these days.

Direct printing

Applying a color pattern to cloth is the most popular technique. It can be rendered on a colored cloth or gray. It is recognized as overprinting if performed on a colored cloth. By impressing a tint on the fabric in a paste shape, this design is made. A small quantity of water is applied to the print paste, and dye is extracted therein. Earlier maize starch was used as a cotton printing thickener.
Textile printing is an art of placing color on a cloth it varies everywhere on the globe also signifies the link of human connection and is subjected to personal taste and personal experience.
The designed cloth is the best example of a human evolution unfolded as man moves across centuries.
