High-speed innovative equipment from Italy
Your fabric will be printed on the latest generation of printers delivering unlimited color and exceptional stability. Thanks to our industrial printers, you can be sure of quality assurance, with excellent color reproduction and color uniformity on single-color areas of any fabric.
WHAT IS YOUR QUALITY ASSURANCE?
The founders of Print-a-porter have been the main Russian participants in the world’s leading textile exhibitions for many years, which enabled them to follow the latest news in the world of fashion. When placing an order, you are working not only with one digital fabric printing platform, but also with two other brands that have established themselves as the best on the market.
- Solstudio Textile Design - textile design studio
- Solstudio Industry - fabric printing shop
With more than 22 years of experience in the world of fashion and textile business, we intend to keep the title of market leaders and guarantee the best quality of printing on textiles in the country. To do this, we have created our own chemical laboratory that monitors the quality of our products.
HOW DO YOU CHECK THE ORDERED FABRIC QUALITY?
In our laboratory, each printed meter of fabric is tested for mechanical properties (shrinkage, stretching, deformation) and for color fastness (multiple industrial washings).
Thanks to strict observance of Italian technologies and quality control at all stages of production, defects are detected before the order delivery and rejected.
WHERE DO YOU BUY FABRICS FOR PRINTING?
We buy fabrics in Italy, Korea, Turkey and China.
By the way, we are a unique production facility in Russia that provides the widest range of textile bases, including linen, silk, wool, cotton, viscose, polyester and much more.
DO YOU HAVE "ORGANIC" OR "BIO" ECO-FRIENDLY FABRICS?
All of our fabric bases meet the strictest environmental textile standards. All the natural fabrics that we use are only environmentally friendly and certified, so they are really called “organic” or “bio”.
Our inks and fabrics are absolutely harmless and hypoallergenic, and can be used for children’s clothing, underwear, and bedding.
Print-a-porter is a socially and environmentally responsible business in Russia. We care for the environment and for people, so we print on environmentally friendly natural fabrics and use dry-print printers in production. Read more about our attitude to the environment on Production page.
WHAT INKS DO YOU USE FOR PRINTING?
We use Italian machines, and only Italian inks are suitable for them.
- For natural and synthetic fabrics, we use reactive inks from Italy, which are used in haute couture throughout Europe.
- For synthetic fabrics, we also only use Italian sublimation inks, not Chinese ones. This is a guarantee of accurate color reproduction, bright color, perfect safety for health and excellent quality of fabric with a long service life.
HOW LONG WILL THE COLOR REMAIN BRIGHT?
Sun fading. It is a fact that any fabric fades over time when exposed to sunlight. However, fabrics printed with our reactive inks fade much more slowly than those printed with pigments.
Wash fading. Our fabric dyeing and textile printing technology ensures perfect machine washability with detergents. For information on how to wash our fabrics and what kind of care they need, refer to Fabrics page. Subject to proper care conditions, we guarantee the preservation of long-lasting color of the patterns on the fabric after up to 300+ washes.
WHAT IF I WANT A REFUND?
If you receive an order with an incorrect print or defective fabric, we are ready to refund your money or reprint your order again. Find more information about the conditions for returning goods on Return policy page.
