Our fabulous range of cottons are available in a variety of weights.

With this choice you can create anything from luxury curtains to pillowcases, shirts to pocketing’s.

A Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certificate is available on our 100% Organic Cotton fabric range only.

Disclaimer: Cotton fabric is subject to an accumulation of fibres, also known as lint, that builds up on the surface of textiles. We make every effort to remove excessive amounts through our industrial facilities, however it is not possible to remove every small fibre. Occasionally lint may lift after the fabric has been printed leaving its natural colour showing through. This is a feature beyond our control.

Printing Scarves

Shrinkage

The processes involved in digital textile printing causes the original fabric to shrink. If you are printing scarves, the size of the finished product will be important to you. For example, if you have square artwork, you will be expecting your finished scarf to be square!

To get the printed fabric closer to the size you need, all fabric intended for scarves must go through an extra step to reshape it. Please allow extra time on your deadlines to allow for this process. 

Let us introduce you to the …

Stenter

The stenter is an enormous piece of machinery that has many uses, including coating our fabrics and reshaping scarf orders.

After travelling through a solution to soften the fabric, it then passes over a flat bed, gripped on the selvedge edges to pull it back into shape. 

It’s a long and precise process that needs to be carefully monitored.

Shrinkage Disclaimer

If you have selected to use our hemming service, we will check the stentered fabric for you before we begin to finish your scarves. If you are not using our service, it’s up to you to check the size BEFORE you cut out the individual scarves from the fabric length. We cannot re-size after your scarves have been cut out.
