We currently offer screen printing and digital printing. Of course, screen printing or foil printing is also possible, but we do not like it due to the low durability.

We offer digital printing from the first piece. It is a good solution for low quantities or designs with many different colors.

Starting from 50 pieces we offer high-quality screen printing. This is the most qualitative method. For each color used in the print design, a separate screen must be developed which makes multicolor screen printing expensive.

If you want to go one step further in branding, then patches or labels are just the thing for you. We can even print and sew branded washing instructions if you want.

We use recycled polyester for labels since it allows to make all over print. 

Labels are being woven, therefore a minimum of 1,000 pieces are made. 1000 labels have a fixed costs of 150€, not used stock of labels will be stored till you come back for another order.

Our favorites are:

  • 100% organic cotton;
  • 50% organic cotton 50% recycled polyester blend;
  • 65% organic cotton and 35% recycled polyester blend;
  • 70% Lycoell (wood fiber) and 30% cotton.

We are happy to work with other fabrics like tencel, modal or bamboo if you order at least 500 pieces.

We produce our textiles exclusively at our production partners in Portugal and Poland.

The process starts at our fabric producer. There, fabric out of yarn is created in desired quality.

Then a piece of the fabric is washed to prevent it from shrinking in the future and the cutting plan is being developed.

The next step is to cut the fabric according to the plan which is done partially by hand if order is smaller than 100 pieces.

Cutted pieces are then delivered to the printing shop where they get their prints or embroideries.

Finally, the products gets in the final shape in our sewing company where separate pieces are sewn by hand.

Final products are washed industrially to prevent a later shrinkage, then are being ironed and packed that they would arrive to you in perfect condition.
