Founded in 1925, the Société d'Impression sur Etoffes du Grand Lemps carries out printing work on textiles.

It works with major ready-to-wear fashion brands on their bath textiles and fashion accessories ranges. It has 30,000 archives, the oldest dating back to 1940. Today a subsidiary of the Hermès group, the company can print a very wide range of fabrics of all thicknesses thanks to the perfect command of several printing techniques (flat frame, mechanical flat frame, cylinder and ink jet digital) and to the in-house production of colours (2,000 references). It has 14 printing tables that vary in length from fifty to one hundred metres.  One of the specificities consists in flat printing for thick fabrics like sponge, notably by inventing special tools like scrapers for better penetration of colorants.
