Experience the Total Textile Solution
Total Textile Solution is the fully integrated system for industrial digital printing on textiles with the Monna Lisa series, where all components follow the same process to guarantee the best printing results and the utmost customer satisfaction. Epson has achieved this goal by building the necessary skills and know-how over the years by initially collaborating and then acquiring as part of the Epson Group two leading companies located in the "Digital Textile Valley" area of Como: F.lli Robustelli, who originally engineered the Monna Lisa system using Epson Micro Piezo print heads, and For.Tex, a trusted provider of dyes, thickeners, specialty for pre- and post-treatment and the Genesta inks.
In December 2020 F.lli Robustelli incorporated For.Tex under the new merged company name of Epson Como Printing Technologies. Monna Lisa, now branded as an Epson product, is the outcome of a story that began in the early 2000s and which has brought Epson at the forefront of the industrial digital textile market.
