Drapery fabric is a generalised term which refers to textiles. It comes from Old French, the word draperie, which is derived from the Late Latin drappus, and is commonly used to refer to fabrics that are used for decorative purposes, namely curtains. Drapery material is a medium weight fabric and is sometimes called a multipurpose fabric, it tends to be lighter than upholstery fabric. Drapery fabric can be used to upholster, but it tends to be used for lighter home and DIY projects, from curtains to valances, roman shades, duvets, and wall art.

All drapery fabric is printed here in our studio. You create your personalised design using our online tool with your photos, images and text, and we digitally print it in full colour onto your chosen material. Order your drapery by the yard or metre, and choose if you want to have it sent straight as it comes off of the printer, cut on the line of your bespoke design, or hemmed by one of our expert seamstresses. Hemming options include a folded hem with a straight stitch, or an overlock hem; both with a choice of either black or white thread.
In regards to Cotton Linen please note that occasional small white dots may occur. This is where pieces of cotton fluff have been removed revealing unprinted white base material. This is both normal and unavoidable but won't compromise your detailed design.
All of our fabrics are printed at 200dpi. This works for us as it combines a great quality as well as a good file weight. In order to avoid resizing and interpolation, we recommend that you scale your image to 100% at 200dpi. Our design interface works with a traffic light system that acts as a quality marker for your designs. This will show you whether the resolution is too low for printing. When you re-upload your design with

There is no length limit for most of our fabrics. Our preview design window is set up to display a maximum of 10m to help you visualise the print, but that doesn't mean this is the print limit. If you'd like to order more, you can increase the quantity (x2 for 20m or x4 for 40m for example) and order as much as you'd like. Larger volumes will receive an automatic discount too. While the fabric length is nothing to worry about, each individual fabric will have a maximum width side: these can be found on the fabric's page information or in the design interface.
Yes, that will help you when it comes to cutting or framing your printed fabric. We recommend always adding a little extra space for borders into your purchased fabric size. When we print your

Yes, our organic fabrics don't have an additional coating like non-organic fabrics have, which means it absorbs the inks deep into its fibre and reducing the colour strength slightly (this can be approximately -40%). If you would like a bolder, more vibrant colour for your fabric, we would suggest using a non-organic fabric.
Unfortunately not; all of our fabrics have been tested meticulously to ensure we know exactly how to get the best results, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. If you are set on a fabric we don't offer, we can offer custom printed sublimation paper to order which will allow you to heat press your designs onto your own fabrics.
If your design is simple and less intricate, a JPEG will be absolutely fine. However, if you have created a design with multi-coloured detailing, we would recommend saving your design in a TIFF format.
Similar to other fabric printing processes, shrinkage can occur. The amount of shrinkage will depend on the fabric, but as a general rule of thumb, please allow for 2-8% shrinkage when working out your measurements. Shrinkage is not an exact science, and the amount of shrinkage will vary from print run to print run. We'd always suggest ordering a little more than you need for your project.
Many of the fabrics we offer are semi-transparent, so printing on both sides of the fabric is not a service we offer.
At the moment, all of our fabric labels are printed on satin fabric. For now, we believe this is the best choice, but will potentially introduce other options in the future. All labels are cut to the same label format. If you would like to choose a different fabric and format for your labels, you could always order a sheet of the fabric of your choice to create labels yourself.

Although very rare, there could be a slight colour difference from one print run to another. This is a normal part of the printing process,
Our full cut & sew service at Bags of Love can be used to your full advantage. We even offer hemming for your fabrics at a small additional cost. Our hems are created with a one or two cold hem that typically uses around 5 to 20mm of fabric (depending on the thickness of your chosen material). Please bear this in mind when you are ordering your printed fabric with hems: If you would like your finished piece to be 100cm x 100cm, change your dimensions to 101.5cm instead to allow space for your hems (you will also need to include additional for potential shrinkage). The thicker the fabric, the bigger the hem will be. Your printed fabric will be hemmed with either Black or White thread. If you are ordering a lightly woven material or
