The American Association of Textile Chemists & Colorists (AATCC) and [TC]2 are jointly sponsoring “Innovative Textile Printing: Green & Global,” September 17–19 at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel, Durham, N.C., U.S.A. The conference will highlight fresh approaches to textile printing and provide insight into the development and production of textile prints in the global supply chain.
Digital textile printing will be presented as both an established solution for product development and an emerging opportunity for production printing of yard goods and finished garments. Sustainability issues and the need to develop printed textile products with environmental consideration will also be on the agenda.
Participants will have the opportunity to visit Cotton Incorporated for a tour of its design and textile processing areas, to see a selection of CAD/CAM technology as well as dyeing and finishing. The tour will also visit [TC]2 for fresh insights into 3D technologies for product development and the integration of digital printing into the sewn product manufacturing environment.
Registrations must be received by Sept. 3. For more information about the conference, visit www.aatcc.org.
