SE-DA, a professional supplier of high-quality textiles for hotels, restaurants and healthcare facilities, in addition to home goods based in Lidzbark, Poland, is now operating a “microfactory” production model based on the Kornit Presto S system for eco-friendly direct-to-fabric production.

SE-DA offers a wide range of decorative fabrics, including curtains, blinds, bedsheets, bathrobes, towels, slippers, and bathroom rugs. It engages in e-commerce via its HotelTex website and prints and sews various pieces in a variety of materials and quantities on demand.

Having implemented the Kornit system, incoming orders are produced with very little set-up time, the products are vivid and soft to the touch and the imprinted materials have a superior light and wash fastness necessary for long-term use. Requiring less inventory has helped improve SE-DA’s bottom line.

“As the demands of our customers grew, we found Kornit Presto S was the best all-around product we could find for high-quality printing to many different fabrics, which gives us great flexibility,” says Damian Marchlewicz, CEO at SE-DA. “The fact that pre- and post-treatment is completely inline makes it possible to print very quickly, keeping costs low while ensuring the production process is environmentally-friendly as no water is used during the entire production process.”

While Kornit’s system represented a significant investment for the business, Marchlewicz noted that Kornit technicians have been very supportive and helpful in ensuring their comfort with using and maintaining the technology, from the evaluation process to installation.

“Having completed a few training sessions, we’ve found the Presto system very easy to operate, without dedicating a lot of time to learning how to use it,” he says. “Multiple prints go into a single feed, which helps minimise our costs, and the customers get a very high-quality graphic that meets any standard in place. We see a great future in the print-on-demand business.”
