Wash care instructions for printed fabrics

Water Pigment print confers a long lifespan. As in any natural product, the print and fabric will mature and soften with minimal colour loss over time.  The quality of the fabric base and wash care can play an important part in the longevity of your fabrics. 

Fabrics should be prepared for printing( ‘PFP’ ),  free of all impurities. 

Softener should be removed before printing as the ink needs to adhere itself to the fabric fiber without any interference

For best results using eco water pigment printing: 

  • Gentle hand wash using cold water ( For first wash keep item separate)
  • Avoid strong detergents, hard spinning, hot or industrial wash
  • Drip dry – do not wring.
  • No excessive rubbing on print.
  • Iron on reverse. 

Fabric Care Labels

Each fabric quality will have its own unique wash fast properties to pigment printing. Customers are liable for their own fabric tests prior to bulk manufacture. Labels with the necessary wash care instructions should accompany all fabric products.

Optional - fabric coatings & treatments

We have coatings that can improve wet or dry rub fastness and fixing agents for problematic fabrics . Our softening agent & water- repellents treatments may be applied to the fabric after printing if required. 

Imaterial will not be held liable for any costs once the printed fabric has been cut or processed in any way.
