Both our 100% natural silk georgette and our poly georgette are airy, flowing fabrics. Poly georgette uses twisted yarns and a classic crepe face with a georgette weave; as the yarns are twisted, they have a corkscrew effect, which gives the fabric a larger surface area.
Dry clean only recommended, can be hand washed in cold water with silk detergent.
Georgette fabric is a fine woven crepe material. It is characteristically lightweight. It is a sheer textile, so the majority of garments made from georgette are lined. It has a fantastic drape and is a fabric which frays easily. Custom printed georgette material doesn't easily crease (poly georgette barely creases at all) and is perfect for bridal wear, as well as dressmaking and home decor such as fine curtains. Georgette gets its name from Madame Georgette de la Plante, who was a French milliner (someone who makes and/or sells women's hats) and dressmaker. Traditionally it is made from silk, however, modern materials can also be used to make georgette fabric, which gives it other properties and characteristics. We offer a 100% silk, and a poly printed georgette fabric, custom made right here in our studio with your personalised design.
With Silk Georgette fabric you should expect a fabric shrinkage of approximately 6% on the weft, and 10% on the warp.
Once your printed georgette material, UK custom made, has your beautiful design in full colour it can be sent straight out to you. We call this "As it comes" and you'll have a white-edged border around your fabric. You can, if you prefer, choose to have your fabric either "Cut on the Line" so all the white edges are removed or as it is a fraying material, you may prefer to have it hemmed. You'll be given the option of a black or white thread, and either an overlocked hem, which stitches over the edges of your fabric or a two-fold hem with a straight stitch. If you choose to have your custom printed georgette material hemmed, then please allow 6-8 mm on each of the sides of your fabric (12-16 mm in total) for hemming when you give us your bespoke measurements.

All fabrics are printed digitally here in our Bags of Love studio. There are different methods that we use to do this based on whether the material is natural or synthetic. These methods include our classic method of pigment printing and reactive dye sublimation, both of which will print your personalised design in full colour to your chosen fabric. Natural materials are pigment printed, which is where the coloured dyes are applied directly to the fabric, in a localised way, building the design up. Synthetic materials use our two-step dye sublimation printing. We first print your custom design onto transfer paper, which is then bonded with heat directly to your fabric.
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, 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
