Every textile is unique and has its own care instructions. They are a durable bunch who will continue to look like new as long as these instructions are followed. Certain fabrics, such as the real silks, require a bit of extra care and attention. With these, we always recommend using a specialist dry cleaner. Cotton and linens do well with a cool and delicate wash cycle. Please do not wash over 30°c, as this could cause some colour fading. All natural cottons have a degree of shrinkage in the print process. Please accept 2-3 % shrinkage in the X and Y directions. To compensate, we suggest allowing a margin of shrinking in your design. Do this by adding more bleed area in your design. If you are ever in any doubt, please get in touch with us via our online chat and we will be happy to help you further.

We have developed a specialist printing method for digital printing on natural fabric that ensures a long-lasting, fade-resistant print. The water-based inks are infused deep into the fibres of your chosen natural fabric, creating a bold finish. We use eco-friendly inks at Bags of Love, which means you not only look good but feel good too. Every textile has its own unique attributes, including base tone, yarn, and construction. This means that each one prints a little differently. Our expert printers know just how to make your fabric look its best, so you can be assured that your customised natural fabric is in safe hands.
We offer different finishes for your fabric. Depending on how you want to use it, you can select a finish to best suit your needs:
Due to the nature of natural fabrics, both the Pima Lawn and Janice Poplin Cotton may occasionally have very small white dots where pieces of cotton fluff are removed revealing unprinted white base material. Please note that this is normal and cannot be avoided but won't affect the strong colours and detailed nature of your print.
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
Your uploaded design will automatically be scaled to fit the size of

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
