How Bespoke Footstools are Made

Handmade to order by our carpentry and upholstery experts, your bespoke footstools are a fine example of genuine craftsmanship. The responsibly sourced wood is used to make the frame and tapered legs, providing a robust build that comes as part of the 10 year guarantee. The sumptuous padding, made from open cell foam, poly wadding and cotton batting, is covered with our fire rated ChiChi Furnishing Velour fabric, that's soft and smooth with a slightly brushed surface. Your designs are printed onto this velour material using a specialist dye sublimation process that fuses the ink deep into the fibres. This creates a permanent print that won't fade, peel away or rub off.



Care Instructions

Chi Chi Furnishing Velour is fire rated. for best results, surface clean only with a damp cloth and once dry, give it a brush to keep the fibres soft and smooth.

Filling materials(s) and covering fabric(s) meet the requirements for resistance to cigarette and match ignition in the 1988 fire safety regulations.

  • No Soak

Design Tips

We wrap the fabric around the gusset, so the corners are cut out to make the stitching flawless. You'll notice in the design interface that the printable area is a cross shape, so ensure important design features aren't placed outside this area as they won't be visible on your footstool. 

You also have an option to customise the underneath of the footrest. If you're an artist, this is an ideal place to put your details and reselling information, or you could even print your design again for total coverage all over.

Frequently asked questions:

What fabric is used for the cushioning?

We use a fire retardant furnishing velour fabric. Its soft, slightly brushed face feels gorgeous under the feet, and these bonus qualities make it a safe textile to be used in domestic settings.

What areas of the footrest can I customise?

As standard, you can customise the entire area of the cushioning, however there's also an option to design the underneath, which is ideal if you need to print artist or reselling information.

How big are these bespoke footstools?

Originally designed to be a footstool, they are low enough to be able to put your legs up in a comfortable, resting position. The height is 50cm, and the width is 63cm.

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 stopping any interpolation.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?

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

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?

    If each individual colour is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each colour with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colours within the image is more important choose RGB, this will reduce all colours equally to fit within our range.

  • GSM ICON

    What does GSM mean?

    Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).

  • Fill Bleed Areas ICON

    What are bleed areas?

    When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    Do you print on garments a customer supplies?

    Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric, and sewn into finished products, which gives a better finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.

  • Pattern Alignment Across Seams ICON

    Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?

    We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns, but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.

  • print label option icon

    Can I print my own Labels?

    Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.

  • 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 colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
