For the third year, Kornit has teamed up with the Fashion Institute of Technology’s (FIT) senior textiles class for our annual design competition. And we took them to Papilo Prints to watch their design come to life!


As part of a lasting collaboration with FIT and Kornit’s sustainable, digital textile printing project on the Kornit Allegro, we’ve challenged students to create one impressive print with “Wearable Water” as the project inspiration.

We consider students the future of the textiles industry that play a vital role in the sustainability of our environment, which is why it is important to challenge all to create and work with an environmentally-friendly ethos and limitless creativity!

This year, and for the very first time, students were able to watch their designs come to life at Papilio Prints in New Jersey, with the winners’ pieces set to be displayed at our SGIA 2016 Las Vegas booth in September. The winner taking ‘First Prize’ will also see their works transformed into a product.

One of the winning student’s prints from “Class of 2015″ was featured in our exclusive collaboration with Gideon Oberson for the debut fashion collection and Kornit live fashion show, hosted at ITMA in Milan.

Stay tuned for the big reveal, as the panel sets to work with the difficult task of choosing three winners.

Here’s a flashback to our first ever student collaborators in 2014!
