Printing on raw fabric (cotton) with VS-540i

Greetings all! Just had a customer stop in and was asking about running raw cotton through the VS-540i.

I told him no, as I was worried about lint sticking to and gumming up the print head.

Basically he wants to go to a fabric store, by a bolt of white cotton fabric and get custom pattern/designs for his client who makes limited high end clothing.  Apparently, having a fabric company print it is either cost prohibitive and/or there is too much fabric that might not get used.

So, is there any equipment out there that could do something like that?  There are direct to garment printers, but I don't know if any of them are set up to take a roll or a bolt of fabric.

Any thought?

thanks in advance!
