The herringbone weave is a traditional pattern, formed by repeating V shapes to produce zig-zagged lines (hence the name 'herring bone' as it looks like a fish skeleton).
Wash at 30°c, low tumble dry heat, hang to dry, do not wring, low heat iron.
Important: Before you measure and order your Herringbone fabric, you must read and understand our hemming and shrinkage guidelines. It's essential to make yourself familiar with this before ordering.
As a popular choice for furnishings, your Mayfair herringbone is an easy to clean fabric. Machine wash at 30°c, medium tumble or hang dry and if you need to, iron on a low heat. Of course, if you're using the material to attach to something non-machine washable, then please do not attempt to put in the washing machine.
Being soft and woven, it's a traditional upholstery fabric. Have you got an chair you're looking to restore? Print your own herringbone material and give it classical look with a contemporary twist. Or you could look to make a lovely throw for your sofa. The added thickness means it's durable enough to withstand everyday wear, so you can sit on it, or simply use as decoration. The intricate detailing of the herringbone weave makes it perfectly suited to other home accessories such as scatter cushions, table runners or if you're feeling more inspired by fashion, then make your own smart summer jacket.

By using a specialist dye sublimation process, the ink is bonded to the herringbone fabric meaning it won't peel away or scratch off. You can choose any design, whether it's photos, illustrations, or graphic design. The base colour of our Mayfair textile is an off-white/cream, giving it an authentic, sort of vintage style look. Because of this, darker colours really pop and have a nice contrast. To get the best results, we'd suggest avoiding large areas of pale colours, as they might get lost against the off-white base.
*What's more, you can choose from four edge finishes to suit the nature of your craft DIY project: cut on the line; hemmed with white thread; hemmed with black thread or just left as it is.
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.

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
