What to keep in mind about fabric care
In general, our fabrics can be machine washed at a maximum temperature of 30°.
Leatherette and oilcloth are NOT machine washable. Clean with a damp cloth.
Under no circumstances should you use bleach such as bleach or chlorine. Preferably iron at low temperature on the fabric side (not on the print side).
On finished fabrics, so that the colour is preserved as well as possible in the wash, it is advisable to wash the garment inside out in short washing machine programmes at 30 ºC, without pre-washing, and with phosphate-free soap for coloured clothes. Never dry clean and, if hand washed, use only the recommended amount of detergent and do not soak longer than indicated. Do not tumble dry and allow to air dry.
In natural fabrics may appear wear when the fabric is folded and rub against the drum of the washing machine, so it is advisable to wash by hand. If you want to put it in the washing machine, we advise you to turn the product inside out before putting it in the washing machine and, if it is a bag or toiletry bag, put a towel in it so that it folds up and does not fold at any time during the washing cycle.
Not all fabrics are equally resistant to wear and tear due to washing or rubbing, therefore, as a general rule, we do not recommend industrial washing, dry cleaning or hand washing with a lot of soap/rubbing. However, if you need a fabric whose print is very resistant to wear and tear, please send us an e-mail to email@example.com telling us about your case and we will recommend the one that best suits your needs. Never accept these conditions without first being sure if the fabric you are going to print on meets your washing expectations.
In particular, it is good to know that in prints on cellulosic or protein fibres (silk, cotton, linen, viscose...), when a solid background colour is used, or the print has a lot of background and little shape (the solid colour is very visible), partial wear may occur in the wash. We do not recommend solid background colours in these cases.
It is recommended to iron prints on the back side and with the iron at medium heat. Our synthetic fabrics do not accept pleats and must be ironed carefully, placing a cloth between the printed sides of the fabric if they are to be ironed one against the other, always making a test ironing beforehand. They are sublimated fabrics and the ink can reactivate, staining the opposite fabric.
As for the uses of the fabric, it is up to the customer to make the necessary tests to verify that the fabric meets the needs required for the desired application, as we are not responsible for any possible damage caused by its use.
