Designing your own fabric?

Recently I came across  this interesting blogpost on Etsy.
It features the company Spoonflower, printing fabrics, wallpapers, etc designed by ...... you and me!


"About Spoonflower's Digital Textile Printing

Digital textile printers are large-format inkjet printers specially modified to run fabric. Unlike conventional textile manufacturing, digital printing entails very little waste of fabric, ink, water or electricity. Spoonflower prints using eco-friendly, water-based pigment inks on natural fiber textiles. No additional chemicals are used in the printing or preparation process.
This type of printing has the added advantages of showing greater design detail than screen printing, as well as allowing designers the ability to use as many colors as they like in their designs. All Spoonflower fabric gets printed in Durham, North Carolina, by a merry band of fabric lovers "


I am really excited about this . It creates a whole new world of opportunities.
