How We Make Your Hand and Face Towels
Your custom towel set is made by hand to order. Your design is printed onto the microfibre fabric from edge to edge. Bear in mind that due to the pile of the technical microfibre fabric, you will see small flecks of white on the face of the towel when brushed against the grain. This is common with all towelling fabric. Once your custom towel set is printed and cut to size, our artisan seamstresses add a beautiful binding in your choice of four colours to finish the hand and face towels.
Your hand and custom face towels can be washed on a standard 30°C laundry cycle. You can tumble dry them on low heat although we do advise hanging to dry where possible. Avoid wringing your towels. If necessary, you can iron your custom towel set on low heat.
You can easily create designs to make a custom towel set for a multitude of uses and occasions. Create couples hand and face towels and differ the design on half of the set ever so slightly. Try using the same designs in complementary colours, or even inverted colours to create more contrast. You could use the same colour scheme but a slightly different pattern - for example, squares on one and circles on another - to stay in keeping with your bathroom decor, whilst ensuring that each half of the set is slightly different.
You could design each of the four pieces of your custom towel set exactly the same, or altogether different. You could even create both of the hand towels in one design and then the pair of custom face towels in a separate design. With the flexibility of designing each part of this set individually, you have so many design options available to you.
Please note, whichever binding colour you choose for your custom towel set will apply to all hand and face towels. You cannot select a different binding for each component.

Frequently asked questions:
Where is my design printed?
When we make your custom towel set, we print the design from edge to edge of the front side of your towel. This will be the main body of your towel. The binding is unprinted but is available in your choice of four different colours.
What are the towels made from?
The custom towel set is made from microfibre towelling, which is a technical fabric made up of lots of little loops. This makes the fabric highly-absorbent as well as fast-drying which lends itself wonderfully to towels.
What is the binding made from?
The binding is made from a polycotton material which is 50% polyester and 50% cotton. This is used to edge the towel and our artisan seamstresses add this to your custom towel set by hand.
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.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
