Working with cotton is so easy, and the results are spectacular.

Our innovative dye sublimation for cotton gives the brightest and most vivid print on natural fabrics, as it bonds the ink to the material. Some of these cottons are hybrid fabrics, meaning they have a cotton base which has been fused with a polyester face. Your design is permanently printed onto this poly front. Cotton by nature is soft, durable and a match made in heaven for dressmakers as it's a breathable, moisture wicking fabric. But being so versatile in the different textures, weights and blends of cotton print fabric available, it's perfect for beddings, crafts and underwear too. Have fun getting creative with cotton!

How Does Dye Sublimation on Cotton Work?

This technical process gives your fabric the intense, vibrant colours that last far longer than other standard cotton printing techniques. Your unique pattern is made from eco-friendly inks that are bonded with the fibres of your chosen cotton, meaning the print won't peel away or scratch off. Each individual cotton has its own base tone, ranging from brilliant white to muted ivory, giving your finished print a unique look. Depending on how you plan to use your cotton print fabric, you can choose how you want the edges to be finished. Choose from cut on the line, hemmed with white thread, hemmed with black thread or just left as it is.

If you choose to have your textile finished with a hem, please bear in mind these measurements and ensure you factor this into your dimensions. 

  • Light fabrics: we use 6-8mm in the hem (2 fold), so your width/height will be minus 12-16mm
  • Medium fabrics that fray: we use 15-20mm in the hem (2 fold) so your width/height will be minus 35-40mm
  • Stiff/heavy/no-fray fabrics: we use 15-20mm in the hem (1 fold) so width/height will be minus 35-40mm

How to Care for Your Cotton

On the whole we recommend a cool delicate wash for more gentle cleaning. Hot washing at anything above 30°c could cause colour fading. As with all natural cottons there is a significant degree of shrinkage in the print process and in the use you may have for the material. Please accept 2-3 % shrinkage in the X and Y directions. To compensate, we suggest to allow a margin of shrinking in your design. Do this by adding more bleed area in your design. It is not an exact science and we cannot predict exactly how one lot of cotton prints will shrink to the next.

What Can I Make With My Cotton Print Fabric?

The opportunities are almost endless. Use the light Lima Cotton to make a pair of seasonal pyjamas. Due to the moisture wicking abilities, it can lock in heat as well as draw it away from the body, so bedtime will always be comfortable no matter what the weather. Or use the Cotton Twill, which is slightly thicker, to use for upholstery, scatter cushions or your craft projects.
