Kornit partnership brings DTG & DTF capabilities to key Vietnamese and Korean markets

Kornit Digital has partnered with Asian suppliers Tri Duc and MayBeOne to deliver Direct-to-Garment (DTG) and Direct-To-Fabric (DTF) capabilities to key Vietnamese and Korean markets.

For 26 years, Tri Duc Trading & Services Co., Ltd has provided Vietnam’s textile printing industry with the hardware, software, and support necessary to grow operations. Their customers manufacture on behalf of many of the world’s most recognizable athletic apparel brands.

According to Dong Nguyen, Managing Director at Tri Duc, pigment-based printing is most popular among Vietnamese print show, and the business wanted to add Kornit Digital’s direct-to-garment (DTG) and direct-to-fabric (DTF) systems to its portfolio on the basis of Kornit’s single-step print process, eco-friendly chemistry, and reputation for delivering quality impressions with reliable technical support.

“We are very pleased to have this opportunity to work with Kornit’s team, and really hope to provide our customers with better products and technologies—tools to grow alongside global trends, and compete with other markets,” he said. “This technology provides the mid- to high-end mass market players and a responsibly sourced and produced operation for superior quality on demand.”

Founded in 1999, MayBeOne serves fashion brands such as Marpple and Dongkwang International, which provide decorated apparel on demand. Their Photomon business provides paper-based printed goods, but the company anticipates greater growth opportunities from textile decoration, with digital DTG providing a strong match for consumers demanding fast, efficient impressions in a variety of fabrics and quantities.

Jeong Inki, Sales Director at MayBeOne, says that by providing the Korean fashion industry with Kornit DTG capabilities, those brands will gain a “dominating” position among on-demand apparel providers in the e-commerce age.

“The Korean textile industry will be changed entirely when they adopt digital print systems, and with our help, major brands and government associations will lead the way,” said Inki. “As our Fashion Insight publication tracks closely the dynamics of today’s fashion producers, we pride ourselves on understanding what drives the industry—and adopting Kornit technology will keep our customers growing as the vanguard of a more efficient, sustainable, and agile fashion marketplace.”

“Tri Duc and MayBeOne both carry considerable weight as longtime providers to the Vietnamese and Korean textile players, and joining forces with Kornit means they’ll be second to none in terms of offering the clean, fast, and profitable technology new market dynamics demand,” said Andy Yarrow, President of Kornit Digital Asia Pacific. “We’re proud to partner with businesses that best know and understand what their customers need, and to drive the digital revolution that promises to make fashion a more equitable, eco-conscious, expressive, and waste-free industry worldwide.”
