Hungarian start-up is based around digital printing
Mbtex presents 600 different designs
They have worked in the textiles sector for 25 years and set up their own business with their team six years ago: Ilona and Arnold Mencsik from Budapest are introducing their fabric collections at Heimtextil for the first time this year. They are showcasing a total of 600 prints, thus offering a huge portfolio to meet every conceivable need. As Arnold Mencsik points out:”We are certified to ISO 9001 and Ökotex standards”. He runs the family company with 16 employees now and has ambitious plans for his firm: this year they will lay the foundations for expanding his company. Mbtex wants to branch out in terms of digital printing and revive the country’s tradition of fabric manufacturing.
“We’d like to show the world that we are preserving traditional craftmanship here in Hungary whilst promoting innovations at the same time”, Arnold Mencsik continues. Some of the prints are designed in blue and white in the style of the folklore patterns from Hungary. “Lavender also plays a significant role in our prints, because Hungary is one of the most important suppliers of lavender in Europe”, says Mencsik. The main lavender fields are situated around Lake Balaton, and Hungary is also known as the Provence of the East. In addition, all imaginable thematic areas are covered in the designs from Mbtex – so there are no limits to their applications in the fields of home textiles and fashion.
