How Does Printing on Microfiber Material Work?
Even though the air holes are visible and the weave is an open knit, your designs are crisp, clear and uninterrupted. Our specialist digital dye sublimation process fuses the ink to the fabric creating so it won't rub off or peel away. The natural base tone of our Boston microfiber fabric is slightly off-white, so deep, rich colours really hold their own. It's such a lovely material to work with thanks to the effortless drape and the way it glides over your skin - and the finished results are stunning.
*When you design your custom printed microfiber fabric, you have 4 edge finishing options: cut on the line for ultimate precision, hemmed with white thread, hemmed with black thread or simply left as it is with a rough cut. So if you've got a specific creative idea in mind and need it expertly finished, we can do it for you.
How to Care for your Boston Microfiber Textile
It's super easy to clean, care for and maintain. If you're making your own tea towels, then the water absorbency and quick dry features mean you can easily reuse it a few times before washing, but as it traps dirt more effectively than other tea towels, you'll need to give it regular machine washes. Wash at 30°c, tumble dry on medium or hang dry, and iron on a low heat.
What Fun Things Can I Make Using Microfiber Fabric?
Who said practical house gifts can't be fun? Design a quirky pattern or upload family photos and make a commemorative tea towel, tablecloth or table placemats. You can save them for special occasions or use them as your everyday table setting.
Another great use of this fabric is to make microfibers clothes. If you've got a child who attends loads of after school clubs and sports activities, you can create a customised tank top that won't be found in lost property. The beautiful drape and moisture wicking nature also make this a great material for summer clothing, such as a boy's polo top. The air holes let the skin breathe and the stretch in the weft allows for a generous give if your shirt pattern is more tight fitting.
Have fun designing and working with this lovely microfiber material.
