The article focuses on developments in the surface industry enabled by the innovations in the high technology industry in the U.S. According to the author, textile design has moved digitally in the domain of desktop publishing in which both industries have profound transformations. With the evolution of ink jet technology, Jacqueline Rice, a member of the Ceramics faculty at the Rhode Island School of Design, presented her own silk scarf line using a 36 wide digital printer and appropriate software programs. Meanwhile, Debra Lunn and Michael Mrowka were able to produce several lines of printed fabrics that are designated primarily for comfort, in which their expansive, experimental facility allows them to do innovative design ideas previously unknown in commercial textiles.
