How your Silk Cushions are Printed & Made

We use specialist digital printing for 100% natural silk cushions resulting in rich, intense colours. Your designs are printed edge-to-edge, and our expert seamstresses hand sew your cushion together, filling it with your padding of choice. The hem is covered by a decorative rope braid trim in either red wine colour, honey gold or ivory beige, which is also hand sewn. Everything is handmade to order in London UK by our expert seamstresses, producing an excellent, artisan finish.



Care Instructions

To keep your cushions bright, soft and silky for years and years, we recommend dry cleaning your cushions. This ensures the print quality is maintained and the fabric is kept in pristine condition.

  • Dry Cleaning

Design Tips

When printing onto natural fabrics, no chemicals are used on the fibres and the print is exceptionally rich. We print edge-to-edge on both sides of your silk cushions, so maximise this opportunity and choose detailed, intricate patterns that's sure to draw attention. A clever use of this double sided printing is to get two cushion designs in one. Choose alternative patterns for each side and instantly change up the ambiance of a room. One side could be dark and mysterious, perfect for nighttime, whilst the other could be full of colour that looks great in the daytime sun.

Frequently asked questions:

What is the rope braiding?

We trim the edges of your luxury silk cushions with a thick rope that's tied in a braided knot. This is an elegant feature that masks the hemming, whilst adding another decorative touch to your furnishings.

Can I wash my cushions?

As with all 100% real silk products, we recommend treating your cushions with extra love and care. Specialist dry cleaning for your silk cushion covers will help keep them in pristine condition.

What is the padding made from?

You have a choice of either duck feather or poly fibre padding for your cushions. This is great if you have allergies, or simply prefer the feel of feather or poly padding.

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.
