Fabrics are often printed with color and patterns using a variety of techniques and machine types. It is the process of transferring color, pattern, motif or decoration of one or more colors in any one of a variety of methods or techniques to the fabric. Textile printing involves the production of a predetermined colored pattern on a fabric, usually with a definite repeat. It can be described as a localized form of dyeing, applying colorant to selected areas of the fabric to build up the design.
