There is so much beauty in nature, and natural fabrics embody this beauty in a completely bespoke way.

Natural fabrics are derived from the fibres that make them. These are either animal or plant-based. Our unique selection includes both of these, and range from smooth and luxurious silk to cool and rustic linen. These textiles can be woven, spun, or knitted, and they have been used for centuries in all parts of the world. Our customers love using these fabrics to create their own customised clothing, to fill their home with soft furnishings, and to make their very own fashion accessories.

How To Care For Your Natural Fabrics

Every textile is unique and has its own care instructions. They are a durable bunch who will continue to look like new as long as these instructions are followed. Certain fabrics, such as the real silks, require a bit of extra care and attention. With these, we always recommend using a specialist dry cleaner. Cotton and linens do well with a cool and delicate wash cycle. Please do not wash over 30°c, as this could cause some colour fading. All natural cottons have a degree of shrinkage in the print process. Please accept 2-3 % shrinkage in the X and Y directions. To compensate, we suggest allowing a margin of shrinking in your design. Do this by adding more bleed area in your design. If you are ever in any doubt, please get in touch with us via our online chat and we will be happy to help you further. 
 

What Can I Make With My Natural Fabrics?

There is so much you can make when you design your own natural fabrics. The soft and breathable nature of these textiles just adds to their plethora of benefits. For dressmaking, real silk makes an elegant and luxurious choice. Think of the flowing drape and the stunning, smooth face that will feel cool and crisp against your skin. For a more rustic and vintage style dress, the organic half-Panama makes a fun choice. The flecks of cotton seeds visible throughout the yarns add to the authenticity of this charming material. The linens make great suit fabric options for the summer, thanks to their cool, breathable and moisture-wicking qualities. There are just so many options, you won't know where to begin. Enjoy your creative journey.

Make a Collage

If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.

photo collage

How to add your collage to your product

Step 1 – Click the start design button & select your product options.

Step 2 – Go to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab, click the ‘add images/Text’ button on your product & ‘Select Images to Upload’ or use the Facebook/Instagram tabs.

Step 3 – Choose the images you want to use for your collage, upload & select them from the uploaded photos list.

Step 4 – Click ‘Create montage’ & select your collage style.

Step 5 – Add the collage to your design.

Hints and Tips

  • The more images you add to your collage the smaller each image will be. Fewer images will be larger and give you more clarity and detail.
  • The more people in an image, the less detail there will be. If you have 10 images of a group of five friends, each person will be smaller than if you have 10 images of just one person.
  • Try to make sure that the longest side of each image is around 10 centimetres. There is a handy ruler built into the design tool to help you with this.
  • Smaller products will not be able to fit as many images as larger ones will.

Choose the perfect fabric for you

We have developed a specialist printing method for digital printing on natural fabric that ensures a long-lasting, fade-resistant print. The water-based inks are infused deep into the fibres of your chosen natural fabric, creating a bold finish. We use eco-friendly inks at Bags of Love, which means you not only look good but feel good too. Every textile has its own unique attributes, including base tone, yarn, and construction. This means that each one prints a little differently. Our expert printers know just how to make your fabric look its best, so you can be assured that your customised natural fabric is in safe hands. 

We offer different finishes for your fabric. Depending on how you want to use it, you can select a finish to best suit your needs:

  • As it comes. We roughly cut around your image, leaving a simple scissor cut (perhaps uneven white fabric border).
  • Hem with thread. We can hem your fabric with a choice of black or white thread. Please allow 1-2 days additional production time. See below for information on how hemming affects the size of your print.
  • Cut on the line. We neatly and precisely cut on the edge of your image.

Create something new and exciting

If you decide that you would like us to hem your fabric, then we recommend keeping these measurements in mind and include them in your final 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
