Bring Home Décor to Life with Kornit Digital

Working from home has encouraged people across the globe to focus on their home décor needs, in addition to making more of their purchases online. Consumers now expect products at their doorstep within hours. This forces textile manufacturers to rethink their strategy to meet current market demands, capitalizing on the opportunity and avoiding pitfalls.

If you’re updating your home décor textile business plan, here’s why you should consider adopting digital print-on-demand production capabilities.
Durability will be critical.
Consumers want to invest in things that last. Whether you are printing yourself or working somewhere else in the fabric chain, you’ll want high-quality and durable fabrics that are tested and proven to withstand washing and rubbing while maintaining a rich feel and look.
So will customization.
Along with living intensely in a defined space comes real awareness of how much its feel determines a person’s energy, emotions, and mindset. People are looking to customize their spaces to conjure up the look, touch, and style that represents who they are as individuals, their interests, and what makes them happy. This is precisely what on-demand printing can provide; it enables people to express themselves as they are here and now. So, whether you’re a cut-and-sew business looking to grow and increase margins, or you’re already printing, digital on-demand production allows you to print custom orders in personalized patterns and quantities – and at a consistent cost.
Weather the move outdoors.
Feeling confined indoors has left people hungry for open spaces and the calm and freedom of nature, which caused them to spend more time out on their porches and yards. Indoor spaces will continue to spill over and expand outdoors as people reinforce the materials and comfort of that outdoor living area or dining room to be a welcoming space in just about any weather. This requires quality printed fabrics that are washable and UV-resistant, so colors stay bright longer.
Be bold. It’s beautiful.
Other times may call for a clean and minimalist look. But after you’ve been staring at the same walls for many months, suddenly it’s all about color, prints, bright window treatments, exciting pops and patterns. It’s time to incorporate all varieties of bold and hopeful touches to wake us (and our homes) up from the numbness and slumber. Home décor will use bright dyes and designs and whimsical orders. Digital printing can provide all that at the highest quality, regardless of the mood or choice of color.
Good for business – and the planet.
People have a newfound interest in the ethics, materials, processes, and labor behind everything, including home décor. They’re upcycling and repurposing more, and veering away from stockpiled warehouses or systems that waste resources. And home décor will be fueled by a new consciousness in sourcing, production, resources, and efficiency. Digital printing offers a more environmentally friendly process, including using less energy and water.
The entire home décor textile industry, including fabric merchants and manufacturers, cut-and-sew operations, and home décor fulfillers, can tap into this rebirth with innovative and smart digital printing tools.
