Lumi: The Potential in Printing with Light Video

What would happen to the world of streetwear if the silkscreening process were suddenly outdated? Lumi is a revolutionary new permanent photographic print process that utilizes a unique water-based series of dyes which develop their color through exposure to sunlight. The applications are potentially endless, with a long list of fabrics, fibers and materials like cotton, linen, wool, silk, leather, jute and wood — just to name a few. Check out this video detailing the impressively simple process from photo to finished and wearable design. And while the founders of Lumi have long since met their goals, you can still contribute to their Kickstarter project and pre-order your own Lumi starter kit here.
