Want to be able to print any item in your closet with Inkodye? When it comes to dark fabrics or detailed designs, sometimes a little creative thinking is required.

For this project, we printed custom Inkodye fabric panels and sewed them onto a jacket to create a precise, high contrast design. The final product is both professional and one-of-a-kind.
