Manufacturers are using a wide range of creative and ingenious decorative techniques to add value to their fabrics. The development of these new decorative techniques has been facilitated partly by recent innovations in garment decoration technology. As a result, the range of economical design options for designers and manufacturers has been widened. These innovations have centred around machinery for: direct to garment digital printing; sublistatic printing; embroidery; conventional sewing; embellishment attachment; heat transfer; and laser decoration. Additionally, interesting advancements in electronic textiles have taken garment decoration beyond the field of aesthetics by enhancing the functionality of garments for their wearers. This report discusses recent developments in garment decoration techniques and includes detailed descriptions of new technologies and machinery.
