Lumi Inkodye

Into the light

An avid photographer, Jesse Genet was just 16 years old when she stumbled across a unique dye formula from the 1950s that just eight years later she and industrial designer Stephen Ango would reformulate into Inkodye and launch what they call the Lumi process. It’s a unique new way to bring your digital photos to light and life by printing them onto fabric using the power of sunshine. No screens and no expensive equipment necessary.

Into the light

An avid photographer, Jesse Genet was just 16 years old when she stumbled across a unique dye formula from the 1950s that just eight years later she and industrial designer Stephen Ango would reformulate into Inkodye and launch what they call the Lumi process. It’s a unique new way to bring your digital photos to light and life by printing them onto fabric using the power of sunshine. No screens and no expensive equipment necessary.

The process works on cotton, linen, silk, rayon, canvas, and any other natural, absorbent fiber. You supply the fabric and 10 to 20 minutes of sunlight. The Inkodye kit provides everything else you need, including an iPhone app for transforming your images into negatives, special films that make it easy to print your negatives at any local print or copy shop, and three different colors of Inkodye. The kit even comes with textile detergents for rinsing your prints and getting them ready to wear.

Once finished, your print is permanent and can be machine-washed without fading. Inkodye is water-based and made of the safest photographic emulsion available in the Lumi studio, located in sunny Los Angeles, CA.

Finally, there’s an easy way to help your digital photos see the light of day by wearing them proudly on your clothes.
