History of Imaterial Textile Printing

Imaterial was formed in 1986 by founder members Remo Gorlei and Marcia Gorlei. Since then the company has grown with a present staff compliment of about 50.

Our aim is to supply a screen & digital print service for exclusive custom textile designs. We specialise in fabric printing for the fashion and home furnishing textile industry.

The print facility in Kensington, Capetown, offers different modes of print techniques, including rotary, hand print & state of the art digital print.

Over the years the company has kept a close interest in technology and sports the latest in Industrial Digital textile printing machinery for natural & synthetic fabrics.

“We take pride in the fact that in 2005 we were the first in South Africa to introduce direct digital pigment printing system for cotton,” says Remo Gorlei."We focus solely on water based printing inks which are environmentally friendly." 

Our High Speed Industrial digital machines are imported from Italy and use the worlds most sophisticated high tech print technology. The print results have been mind blowing, not only in the superior print quality but also the speed and reliability.

We are a total service from the design and layout to the screen making and the variety of printing options.

Imaterial is a customer friendly environment ensuring time efficiency, affordability and flexibility to our clients.

We consider no order too small and at the same time have the capacity to efficiently deliver on large orders.

Together with our largely experienced team Remo and Marcia remain hands on supervising, teaching and developing their passion and dream of locally printed textiles.
