Scuba Crepe Fabric UK
Printing on scuba crepe material is perfect for clothing and form-fitting garments. Hand printed heavyweight scuba with a beautiful "crepe" face.
The front texture of the scuba crepe fabric UK printed is distinctly "crepe" like. A slightly grainy and textured face and a plain, smooth back, adds depth and interest to the textile. Similar to a thin neoprene, this fabric has incredible elasticity, making printing on scuba crepe material lively and fun to work with. The scuba crepe has a beautiful drape, and returns perfectly to its original shape once relaxed.
The textured crepe fabric gives this material a stylish matt finish. The base tone of the scuba crepe fabric UK is a stark white, which is the perfect canvas for bold and vibrant prints. Colour intensity reproduction is bold and lively and details and fine lines are showcased in high quality. When printing on scuba crepe material patterns are disrupted when the fabric is stretched, more so on the weft, but the recovery is excellent.
Scuba crepe fabric UK has several usages, making it a versatile and appealing textile to work with. The scuba knitted "Lycra" has amazing stretch, particularly on the weft. The double layered Lycra knit is a heavyweight fabric at 290gsm that provides a smooth back and textured face, making it comfortable and easy to wear. When printing on scuba crepe material remember it is the perfect material for tight, body-hugging dresses and clothing, compression clothing.
Reviews for Scuba Crepe
based on 7 customer reviews
All of the fabric I ordered was exactly how I imagined -the colour and the fabric itself was great condition! Although one section was slightly damaged when printing, Contrado sent me an addition 2 meters to make up for the wonky print, as well as the original.
Couldn't ask for better customer service and delivery speed.
I designed my own fabric and used Velvet Shimmer... 100 per cent would recommend Contrado ... the quality and the colours in the fabric, spot on.
The product quality was fantastic. The 100% silk is an absolute delight and I will be using it a lot more in the future for my scarf making. The image on the silk was slightly distorted, but I am putting that down as my own issue due to the original image resolution. Other than that, I am very appreciative.
The products where all top quality, all fabrics neatly cut. Printing colours and fabrics where the best I've ever had on any website.
Great photoprint quality! Better than expected
Good quality fabric. I need to improve my images to make the print even better. Fast turn around and glad I got the swatches to help choose next order. Hope to become one of your featured designers!!
the print was clear and vibrant very impressed i have a back ground in textiles and was still impressed with how my print turned out.
Frequently asked questions on Scuba Crepe 290gsm:
What is the difference between scuba crepe and scuba?
Both fabrics have a similar weight. scuba is slightly lighter at 275gsm while the scuba crepe fabric weighs a heavier 290gsm. Both fabrics have a strong 4-way stretch and great recovery. The main difference is the face of the fabrics. Scuba is very smooth and spongy, while scuba crepe has a textured, crepe face.
What does Scuba Crepe fabric feel like?
The feel of this scuba fabric is very different to our other heavy Lycra fabrics. It shares the spongy, stretchy qualities, but has a very different handle, which makes it stand out. The face of the textile has an interesting handle; slightly textured, with a unique crepe effect (as the name suggests), and the back is completely smooth.
What is the print quality of Scuba Crepe fabric like?
Scuba fabric UK made prints like a dream. The many qualities of the textile, such as the stark white base tone and the knitted composition, allow colours to be reproduced with vibrant realism and intensity. Details and fine lines come out perfectly. Prints are disrupted when stretched, but recover brilliantly when relaxed.
