What if you could make your own mark on the fashion and furniture you buy? Transform your plain T-shirt into a canvas, or a lampshade into a piece of art? By creating specially formulated dyes and print technology, Los Angeles-based design studio Lumi lets anyone do just that. Customers can print photo-quality designs onto sustainable vegetal or animal fabrics (like cotton, linen, or silk) using just the power of the sun.
Though it's a small company, Lumi has attracted a loyal following of creatively-inclined customers thanks to their strong presence on Facebook and Twitter, which makes it easy to respond one-on-one with customers about projects, problems, and advice. In addition to their trademarked Inkodye colors, they offer enhanced printing technologies and informative user guides to give customers tools to explore their creativity.
Watch our video to learn more about Lumi, their unique technology, and how they became an innovative small business with the power to inspire creativity in others.
