Santa Barbara, Calif.-based FergusonandAssociates has installed a Cotton Art® production unit at
Lafayette Textile Industries LLC, Los Angeles. The printing process is now available exclusively in
the United States through Lafayette.Cotton Art, developed by Denmark-based Dansk Transfertryk A/S,
uses a process of indirect reactive printing for cotton or natural fiber knitted or woven textiles.
The process allows precise reproduction of original art without the hardened feel of other
decoration processes, Ferguson claims. Dyes are water-soluble, and the transfer paper can be
recycled, making the process environmentally friendly.
