About Your Custom Holdalls
When you design your own custom holdalls, you can be assured that you will receive a beautifully made, unique piece of luggage that has been created just for you. Your holdall has a spacious interior, which has enough room for everything from trips to the gym to trips away for the weekend. It is also a great bag to take into work, as you can fit your laptop, paperwork and even a spare change of clothes or shoes if you are planning on heading out after you have finished for the day. Available in 2 sizes, the smaller bag is like a roomy handbag. Both sizes are available with a leather or canvas trim, with your designs printed onto canvas. The black rolled leather handles provide comfort whether you wear it on your shoulder, the crook of your elbow or in your hands.

How We Make Your Custom Holdalls
Custom printed holdalls are made in our London studio, by our team of expertly skilled technicians and craftsmen. Your holdall is made from a flexible yet durable canvas and supple Nappa leather. These materials ensure custom holdalls are sturdy, robust and beautiful. Your designs are printed onto the canvas, which showcases detail and colour superbly. Handmade to order, the leather and canvas are cut to size, before being stitched together. Each size has its own individual features. These are added to the body of the bag; from internal pockets to lining fabric. You will love the real leather handles, which are so comfortable to hold.
It is important to consider the stitch area when creating your design. Approximately 1cm of the fabric is stitched into the holdall on all sides, so ensure you leave enough room in your design to account for this. If you are using your custom holdalls for travel and work, you might want to create a design that will make you feel at home whenever you see it. Paintings and portraits of family members, friends and even pets will look stunning against the leather and canvas of the bag. If you are planning on using your holdall as a gym bag, then an inspirational piece of art should motivate you to push your limits! Maybe even inspirational quotes combined with an original design.

Ideal for stashing your gym kit or overnight necessities, these handmade holdalls feature designs created by our #ContradoCreatives.
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.
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.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour 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)
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).
What are the 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.
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 the 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.
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.
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.
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.
