    This woven towel material is made from a woven poly blend and is among our thickest fabrics.

    It is fire rated for nightwear and woven in the EU. Snug and comfortable, this soft towel fabric is a crease free material. Colors are deep and rich when printed on towel material, as they are a great contrast to the crisp white base color. The closed loop weave allows for deeper penetration printing, and due to the fibrous nature of the material, the surface area isn't completely even, giving each custom towel order it's own unique character. You may notice white flecks when you brush the fabric a specific way, this is normal for toweling fabric and adds further to the unique character.

    What is Toweling Fabric?

    A soft loop pile fabric which has been designed to absorb moisture, terry fabric was originally a woven fabric however may also be warp or weft knitted. Our toweling fabric is constructed using a closed loop, woven poly blend to give that truly traditional, soft, toweling feel. 'Terry' comes from the French 'tirer' which literally means 'to pull'. This is due to the way that the towel material was made by pulling the pile loops out by hand. Over time this fabric has had many names, terrycloth, terry cotton, terry toweling, and more commonly, simply toweling. This super-absorbent material is perfect for tea towel fabric, bath towels, flannels, and nappies. Due to its soft pile and comforting nature, microfiber toweling fabric is also commonly used for many baby items, such as slippers, bath robes, or dressing gowns.


    Make a Collage

    If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.

    photo collage

    How to add your collage to your product

    Step 1 – Click the start design button & select your product options.

    Step 2 – Go to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab, click the ‘add images/Text’ button on your product & ‘Select Images to Upload’ or use the Facebook/Instagram tabs.

    Step 3 – Choose the images you want to use for your collage, upload & select them from the uploaded photos list.

    Step 4 – Click ‘Create montage’ & select your collage style.

    Step 5 – Add the collage to your design.

    Hints and Tips

    • The more images you add to your collage the smaller each image will be. Fewer images will be larger and give you more clarity and detail.
    • The more people in an image, the less detail there will be. If you have 10 images of a group of five friends, each person will be smaller than if you have 10 images on just one person.
    • Try to make sure that the longest side of each image is around 3.93". There is a handy ruler built into the design tool to help you with this.
    • Smaller products will not be able to fit as many images as larger ones will.

    Print on Toweling

    We used digital printing methods to print on toweling fabric, resulting in a permanent print, which is bonded deep within the fibers of the material. You have a few finishing options once you complete the main design of your towel material. You can have your toweling fabric hemmed in either black or white thread with an overlock stitch, or you can opt to have it sent out to you either as it comes from the printer of with the white edging removed.

    Print Guideline

      • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

        What's the best resolution to print in?

        We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi; this means that no resizing of your file occurs, preventing any interpolation. Our design interface will have a quality marker next to the design that you have uploaded, this will change color using a traffic light system and display a message. The message will let you know if the resolution is too low or if you have a good quality image.

    • scaling-Print Guideline Icon

      How will my image scale?

      When you upload your design our system will automatically scale it to fit your chosen fabric dimensions. In the ‘Product Image’ tab, the displayed dimensions under ‘Print Size’ will show the dimensions of the piece of fabric that you are ordering. For image/design dimensions you need to see the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab. You can see and edit the dimensions of the image under the quality information next to the thumbnail.

    • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

      Which color model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?

      We advise providing images in the RGB color space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best color results. What does this mean? In your editing software, choose RGB as the working space and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)

    • Print-Roll Length Fabric Guide Icon

      Maximum dimensions

      For most of our fabrics, there is no limit on the length of the fabric that you can order. We have a preview design window set up to 10 yds max to visualize the print, but that's not a print limit. If you'd like to order more, increase the quantity (x2 for 20 yds or x4 for 40 yds for e.g.) and then you can order as much as you'd like, with a built in automatic volume discount too. The maximum print width of each fabric can be found on the individual fabric pages or in our design interface.

    • Borders-Print Guideline Icon

      Do I need to incorporate white space within my design if I want a border or some cutting space?

      Yes, that might help you! Always incorporate any extra space or borders into your purchased fabric size. We trim squarely around fabric samples and fabric prints, leaving approximately 0.2" white space. Cutting neatly on the line has an additional fee.

    • crocking-Print Guideline Icon

      What is crocking and why might it occur?

      Crocking, which is fading along the creases, often after washing or heavy use, occurs when you digitally print on natural fabrics - more so when dark or dense colors are used. It can be minimized by using a cool hand wash instead of machine washing as the tumbling of the machine is the main cause of this. To avoid entirely, we would advise using a poly fabric.

    • organics-Print Guideline Icon

      Why do my colors appear lighter on organic fabrics?

      Our organic fabrics do not have any coatings that the non-organic fabrics have. This means the ink absorbs into the fibers, reducing the color strength slightly (by approx. -40%). For super-strong colors, we recommend a non-organic natural fabric.

    • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

      Do you print on fabric a customer supplies?

      Unfortunately not; we like to test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation transfer paper to order, and if you have access to a heat press you can press your own fabrics easily.

    • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

      Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?

      For multi-colored or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colors and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.

    • Shrinkage-Print Guideline Icon

      What is the situation with material shrinkage?

      Just like many fabric printing processes, there is the potential for shrinkage. Depending on the fabric, please expect and allow between 2-8% shrinkage which you need to plan for in your dimensions. This percentage can vary from print run to print run and between fabrics, so we would advise to order a little more material than you require for your project.

    • Print-Both Sides Print Guideline Icon

      Can I print on both sides of the fabric?

      We do not offer to print on both sides of the fabric, as a lot of our fabrics are semi-transparent or have some show through. This wouldn't work with double-sided printing. This is not a service that we offer on any of our fabrics.

    • Labels-Print Guideline Icon

      Can I order labels in another fabric? Would you cut them as you do with the normal fabric labels?

      At the moment no, our labels are all printed on the same satin fabric. We may introduce more in the future, but for now, this is the best choice. The labels are all cut the same way. You can order the fabric of your choice and make the labels yourself, but we do not cut different fabrics into label format.

    • Eco friendly Printing

      How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?

      With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colors and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment. Rather than roll the fabrics, or send them in a tube, we fold them before they are sent out to you. This saves over 150 tubes a week, as well as a lot of space on the delivery van. (For delicate fabrics we ensure to package appropriately).

    • colour palette

      Why are there slight color differences between my orders?

      We work at improving our color profiles all the time. Though rare, it may happen that from one print run to another, and there could be slight color differences, this is normal and part of the process when we are constantly improving. It is extremely unlikely that there will be a huge difference (like orange instead of red for example). Please bear in mind such color variations can be intensified from fabric to fabric due to the varying grains and textures of the fabric. This is due to the construction of the materials as well as the print methods that have to be altered slightly for more delicate, natural textiles.




    Sizing For Hemming And Shrinkage

    Hemming Options ICON

    We have a full Cut & Sew service here at Bags of Love, and are able to hem your fabric prints for a small additional charge. We create a small one- or two-fold hem that typically uses 0.2" to 0.75" (5-20mm) of material, depending on the thickness of the fabric. So, for example, if you want a finished piece of fabric that measures 39.37" x 39.37", you will need to order a size of 39.96" x 39.96" to allow for the hem (on top of that please also allow for shrinkage of min 2%). The thicker the fabric, the bigger the hem will be. You can choose to have your prints hemmed with either Black or White thread. On our silk and other light woven fabrics, one hemmed edge will be straight (vertically down the roll) and the other will be slightly rippled. The hemming material allowances are as follows and you need to make your print bigger to accommodate the hem:

    • Light Fabrics (0.59oz-2.95oz): For silks and other light fabrics, we use 0.24" - 0.32" / 6mm-8mm in the hem (2 fold), so overall width/height will be minus 0.48"-0.56""/ 12-16mm
    • Medium Fabrics (2.98oz-5.90oz): For medium-weight fabrics that fray, we use 0.5 - 0.75" / 15-20mm in the hem (2 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 1.4" - 1.6" / 35-40mm
    • Stiff/Heavy/No-fray fabrics: we use 0.5 - 0.75" / 15-20mm in the hem (1 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 1.5" / 35-40mm
    All of these measurements are approximate and can vary. Including with shrinkage, it can mean a fairly significant difference to ordered dimensions, so please plan your print accordingly. Depending on how open the weave is, our fabric can shrink anywhere from 2% to 8% with the average being 2.5%.
     

    How Would you Like the Edge?

    We have four finishing options for your fabric order: 
    • As it comes. We cut around your image, leaving a simply scissor cut, perhaps uneven white fabric border.
    • Hem with thread. We can hem your fabric with a choice of black or white thread. Please allow 1-2 days of additional production time. See below for information on how hemming affects the size of your print. We offer an overlock hem, as well as a folded hem (one or two fold depending on the fabric) however not all fabrics are suited to both hem types. If you can see both options, it means both are suitable, and you will be able to choose whichever you prefer.
    • Cut on the line. We will cut neatly on the edge of your design. This means that if you have a border around your design we will cut around that border, if your design takes the whole space of the fabric, then we will neatly cut around the edge of that image. Please be aware, when we cut along the line, we have to cut against the grain of the fabric. This is the standard procedure for fabric cutting. This means that with some fabrics, for example, Georgette and Mulmul, which have a slight wave in them, some fraying will occur. This is unavoidable, as the cut follows the grain of the textile.

    All of our fabrics are cut manually by hand, with the utmost care and attention. If your fabric has a slightly uneven look on the edges or a touch of fraying, this does not indicate a flaw in the textile. It is not always possible to achieve a perfectly straight cut with certain fabrics, so please do bear this in mind when it comes to your design. If you have any queries or would like to know about our cutting methods in more detail, please get in touch and we will be more than happy to discuss them with you.
