Full Article:

This study examines the conditions of the Brazilian textile industry when there began to be the first activities involving design printing. Setting out from the biography and skills of Ernest Bowers, it raises issues aimed at understanding if the processes undertaken can be regarded as a technology transfer or the teaching of crafts, on the basis of the resources and constraints of those who carried out this professional practice in Brazil.
