Kornit Digital to inspire the Textile Printing and Design Community at Digital Innovation Event in Duesseldorf. Spoonflower’s Caroline Okun to hold “Fiber Revolution” keynote speech.
Kornit Digital, (NASDAQ: KRNT), a worldwide market leader in digital textile printing technology, has confirmed the agenda for its upcoming Digital Innovation Event, taking place at its brand new show room in Duesseldorf, Germany.
The objective of the event is to inspire eCommerce businesses, textile producers and designers, home textile manufacturers and everybody else who is interested in the topic about the opportunities enabled by digital textile printing.
Caroline Okun will deliver a keynote presentation titled “Fiber Revolution: The Pathway to Mass Customization”. Mrs. Okun is the Director of Sprout Patterns, the latest initiative of Spoonflower. It is a new service that offers public indie sewing patterns that can be combined with Spoonflower designs to create customized cut and sew projects. Spoonflower is an online market place used by a community of over 3.5 million individuals who use their own designs to make curtains, quilts, clothes, bags, furniture, dolls, pillows, framed artwork, costumes, banners and much, much more. With over 350,000 designs, the Spoonflower marketplace is the largest collection of independent designers in the world. Spoonflower has recently opened a European production facility in Berlin and relies on Kornit Digital’s technology as the backbone of the company’s printed fabric production.
Also on the agenda are presentations and workshops with software and technology experts in digital textile production: Caldera, a specialist in printing and color management software for textile printing systems, Zünd, a leading manufacturer of digital cutting systems and Assyst, an expert in 3D visualization of fabric, cut piece and the human being.
Oliver Luedtke, Marketing Director at Kornit Digital Europe, is excited about the line-up of high-caliber presenters and partners from the industry: “Digital production technologies have arrived in the textile markets. We know from our customers that those technologies enable new and exciting business models, and we would like to demonstrate these opportunities to everybody who is either active or interested in the field of digitally produced textiles”.

Caroline Okun Bio
Caroline is the Director at Sprout Patterns in Durham. Before leading the Sprout team, she was the Art Director and sole designer at Spoonflower starting in 2008 when she created their logo and initial online branding. She is very excited to be working to bring together indie pattern makers and Spoonflower designers into a flurry of creative expression. In her spare time she is a dedicated volunteer and adoption counselor at her local animal shelter, a vigilant amateur chef, and like a kid in a candy shop with her sewing machine.
Caroline has Bachelor degrees from both UNC-Chapel Hill and NC State University and a Master’s degree from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. Having studied both art and psychology, she is especially fascinated at the ways that color and design impact our everyday lives.
