If you are intending to turn your designs into scarves we offer a bespoke hemming service for finishing.

Scarf finishing

Disclaimer:

Any irregularities and variations in the weave of our fabrics are in NO way to be considered as defects. They are a characteristic of a natural fibre.
It is important to allow for shrinkage. Shrinkage can be up to 10% on most fabrics, however for stretch fabrics it can be up to 20%. Short runs shrink more than longer runs pro rata; however this is not a precise science. Shrinkage can vary from one batch of fabric to another.
The natural shade of fabric may vary from roll to roll and is a circumstance beyond our control.
Please examine the fabrics carefully before processing. Direct or indirect claims for any reason whatsoever will not be accepted once the customer, or any party acting upon their instructions, has cut, or processed the fabric in any way.

We strive to keep our technical equipment as current as possible in order to provide the best printing quality in the digital textile sector. This requires us to embrace software and machinery development. It may happen that due to the evolving nature of technology, changes in the colour hues over time are inevitable and unavoidable. We cannot be held responsible for amendments or changes introduced by third party suppliers of dyes, chemistry or technology that are imposed on us and are therefore out of our control. Please be advised that this may affect any repeat print requests over a period of time.

Claims for any defects, or shortages, must be made in writing within seven days of delivery of the fabric.

The fabric journey

 

Batching

As the raw fabric arrives it is rolled for optimum efficiency into batches ready for the next step.

Coating

All natural fabrics need to be coated to enable digital printing. Silk and wool fabrics are acid coated allowing the dyes to be absorbed into the fabric when steamed. Cotton and viscose fabrics have an alkaline coating that causes a chemical reaction with the inks. Each unique blend of agents ensure optimum ink adhesion.

De-batching

The coated fabric is now prepared for the printers in manageable rolls.

Printing

The fabric is rolled onto the printers adhesive flat bed for printing with our best quality dyes. For Polyester sublimation the image is first printed onto a special paper and then heat transferred onto the fabric. We use either: Acid, Reactive or Dispersive dyes in our printing depending on which fabric we are printing.

Steaming

This step in the process fixes the dyes to the fabrics by transferring the colour into the physical structure of each thread within the cloth.

Washing and drying

Our relaxed open width washer dryer ensures that any surplus dyes are removed and the fabric is then propelled through a warm air drying process.

QC

Quality control examine each fabric order, spotting any defects that may have occurred in the process. Any found are sent back to the Printing stage if required.

Despatch

When passing the QC stage your fabric is packed and despatched using a courier service for next day delivery.

Making up

Now you have your printed fabric, you’re ready to make your designs into your final products.
