Sharubina N.S., Еco-printing in the modern textile design

Today we can see an increasing interest in the field of ecodesign and eco-
printing. Prior studies note the importance of ecodesign in the modern society.
Yet there are not complete explorations of this problem in the recent research.
The objectives of this study are to determine problems of ecological dyeing
and substantiate the possibility of giving antimicrobial activity of silk and cotton
textile materials.
A large and growing body of literature investigated that one of the main
trend of ecodesign is a possibility to determine basics of eco-printing in the
context of modern textile design. It was decided that the best method to adopt
for this investigation was to separate ecological coloring into the component
The current study found that the information is very fragmentary; many
problems were not highlighted by authors. However, it is interesting to note that
finishing of materials along with providing antimicrobial properties doesn’t have
an influence on characteristics of colors and colorings. Yet this finishing can
increase resistance to washing.
This study shown that the wider using of plant dyes instead of toxic brands
of synthetic dyes should be more technological. The results of this study do not
explain color characteristics of eco dyes and textile materials, that is why these
results can be used to develop the method of eco-printing.
