With our fabric printing service we offer a wide range of materials. A great number of these are cottons in a variety of different weights. If you're wondering what's the right choice fabric for your project here are a number of reasons why you should choose a cotton:

Comfort: Cotton is a soft, breathable, and natural fabric. It allows air circulation and helps to keep your body cool in hot and humid weather conditions. It is also comfortable to wear against the skin and doesn't cause irritation or allergies for most people.

Absorbency: Cotton has excellent absorbent properties, making it effective in absorbing sweat and moisture from your body. It can absorb up to 27 times its own weight in water, helping to keep you dry and comfortable.

Breathability: Cotton fabric allows air to flow through it, making it highly breathable. This ventilation helps to regulate body temperature and prevent overheating, especially in warm climates or during physical activities.

Hypoallergenic: Cotton is generally hypoallergenic and unlikely to cause allergic reactions or skin irritations. It is a natural fabric, which makes it suitable for people with sensitive skin or allergies.

Durability: Cotton is a strong and durable fabric that can withstand regular wear and tear. The majority of our cottons can be machine-washed, ensuring longevity and value for your money.

Versatility: Cotton fabric comes in various weights, weaves, and finishes, making it versatile for different types of clothing homeware and many other purposes. It can be used to make light summer garments, heavy winter clothes, beddings, towels, and much more.

Sustainability: Cotton is a natural, renewable, and biodegradable material. It is derived from the cotton plant, and its production has a relatively low impact on the environment compared to synthetic fabrics. Additionally, organic cotton is grown without the use of harmful pesticides and chemicals, making it an eco-friendly choice.

While cotton has numerous advantages, it's worth noting that there are other fabric options available, each with their own unique properties and purposes. With our fabric printing service you can choose between not just cottons, but a variety of other materials as well, and have your own design printed onto it. We also have a large number of patterns in our shop to choose from as well.
