Fabrics treated for inkjet printing
We also carry a range of pre-treated fabrics which come with a paper backing ready for feeding into your inkjet printer. The cotton and silk sheets come in packs of 10, and the organza sheets, which are very effective when layered, come in packs of 5.
The silk is also sold 'off the roll' in lengths of 43cm x 50cm.
The photograph below shows flowers printed onto the Habotai silk. Once the print has been allowed to dry for a minimum of 24 hours, the paper backing can be removed and the fabric washed. Prints are hand washable remain very light fast, retaining the suppleness of the fabric.
