Originally founded in 2017 , ‘Made in Barnsley’ was a new business that rented office space from the Village Hall to produce garments that used any digital image printed onto fabric.

At the outset it was supposed to have an open market opportunity providing printed banners for the NUM, as well as other creating other NUM materials. as such, their focus was to satisfy a growing demand in the supply of printed banners, replicating the mining banners of yesteryear at significantly reduced costs. They achieve this by printing images and designs, including photographic images, directly onto large fabrics that can then be stitched together with dramatic effect.

 Understanding of the digital textile market

Although digital printing onto fabric works in the same way as any office type ink-jet printers, fabric has always been inherently more difficult to print due to its flexible nature.

The level of flexibility varies from warp to weft and with each weave, so guiding the fabric under digital printer heads has proven to be very challenging. 

Before any printing is carried out, the designs need to be developed in a digital format that can be read by the computer softwares, systems and digital printing process.
