Rosso Forte scarf via the red thread

Digital printing :: Rosso Forte scarves

I’ve been using digital printing for my own the red thread products for some years now and I’m continually inspired by how others are using it to amazing effect. These beautiful cashmere, wool and modal scarves are by Italian designer Franco Armilla forĀ Rosso Forte, Italy and feature moody photos from around the world. In addition to wearing these exquisite creations, they are works of art in themselves and would look perfect on the wall as art pieces.

    I think these scarves are stunning! I’m a photographer and was wondering if anybody knew and UK based companies that can print images onto scarves like this? I’ve found places that print onto silk, but am interested in the above fabric! Many thanks!

    Just to let you know that we loved them so much we became their UK representatives. You can buy them online at our website http://www.lilygardner.com. They are lovely and soft and scrunch down into wonderful mashed colourways. The material is like cashmere but they are light enough to wear on a cooler summer’s evening…should we ever get summer.

    Sorry cant help re companies that will do this sort of printing on modal here but if I do I will come back to you here. You could start looking via the magazine Selvedge which is very informative?
