Choose the material that you would like your custom printed cosmetic bags to be made from.

How your custom cosmetic bag is made

Your design is printed onto the leather material using an up-to-date specialist leather printing method. This infuses the inks to the fibres of the textile, making the print as strong as the leather itself. 

Once your custom printed cosmetic bag material is ready, a skilled craftsman will cut it to shape, as determined by the shell pattern our exclusive in-house designer has created, before artisan seamstresses stitch it together. Your makeup bag is then finished with a beautiful zip, with black tape, and a silver coloured zipper with a round puller. 



Care Instructions

If necessary simply wipe clean with a damp cloth.

Design Tips

Why not design your own cosmetic bag with a matching set? A great way to create cosmetic consistency is with full-sized, travel and portable custom printed cosmetic bags all featuring the same spectacular design. 

As you can print both the front and back of your custom cosmetic bag separately, you can create some amazing effects. You could use the same design on each side but alter one of them slightly. You can make one side black and white, you could invert the colours of one side or you could even flip or rotate it. Each of these would create a stunning visual piece and allow the same design to be enjoyed differently. 

Another great idea is to use two pieces from the same collection, or a painting of the same tree in two different seasons, one on either side; creating a wonderful time-lapse style piece.

Frequently asked questions:

Can these be used for other things?

Certainly, the different sizes don't have to be separated into home, travel and portable. You could have one for creams, one for bronzer, blushes and powders and one for smaller things like lipsticks. You could have one for shampoos and shower gel, one for makeup and one for a travel toothbrush and toothpaste. It's entirely up to you.

What are the four thread colour options?

You can choose from either charcoal, cream, red or blue thread when you design your own cosmetic bag. We use a higher gauge thread which is specifically selected to be used with leather products, and we have specialist seamstresses to work with this, so you can be assured that everything is of the highest quality.

What type of leather is Italian Nappa?

We make your custom printed cosmetic bags from 100% Italian Nappa leather. This is a full grain goat leather, making it the best available grade of leather. It is wonderfully soft, and we print directly onto it, so there is no film or added texture as a result of your design. It is low crease and comes in either smooth or textured.

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?

    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)

  • 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 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
