The widespread availability of interior design decorations has significantly changed the use of textiles in recent decades. The raw materials offered by Berger Textiles, both for the interior design and the decoration industries, including Berger Samba, the world’s first backlit textile, Lumina, and Revolution used for decorations for the event were showcased, alongside three grand printers – the Signracer 1600 UV, the HP Stitch S500 textile printer and the Mutoh 461 UF – which were used by members of staff of the Association of Hungarian Light Industry to interactively demonstrate how products are made.
