Lyon moulds and rake, 20th century

Lyon moulds and rake. To print the desired colour, the rake is used to spread the colour throughout the mould. A different mould is used for each colour, so in this case a garment printed with a plant is yielded in five colours, which is what the visitor can see.

Premià de Mar was the first place in Spain where the Lyon printing technique was used. This is why the town contains the Printing Museum.
