The visualisation above have a view character. Colours on a screen may differ in tone from printed ones. Some browsers have problems with interpreting colours that are saved in CMYK profile. We also cannot ensure that each pattern from the catalogue repeats seamlessly. If you want to know what the final result will be like or you hadn't chosen the pattern before, order a printed sample first. The watermark you can see in the preview (Adobe Stock logo and a design number) won’t be printed on the fabric. Samples and swatches with designs from the catalogue are dedicated for checking the print quality and can't be used for sale.Find out more about colour reproduction on fabrics.

CottonBee is a GOTS 6.0 certified company
All of our cotton fabrics are printed digitally using pigmented inks. Our polyester fabrics are printed using sublimation printing.
Pigment ink printing technology is considered to be the least invasive for the environment and completely safe for people. The device on which we print can be compared to large-size inkjet printers. On such a printer, we put a bolt of white cotton fabric (we print on both woven and knitted fabrics). Then we send the design to the device, and the print head applies the pigment inks on the surface of the fabric. The pigment inks we use in our printing house comply with the requirements of OEKO-TEX Standard 100 (class I and II) and GOTS 6.0 certificates. Our printed organic fabrics are GOTS 6.0 certified. The finished printout is fixed at a high temperature. We do not use water in the printing process.
Dye-sublimation printing technology is perfect for polyester fabrics with over 80% of the textile being made of polyester fibres. In sublimation, printing designs are printed in two steps. At first, the design is applied to transfer paper and then the paper and fabric are sandwiched together in a calendering machine. Using pressure and high heat pigments go from solid to the gaseous state and bind directly with the fibres of the textile.
Printing technologies we use have nothing in common with solvent inks or other aggressive solvent dyes that are popular in the advertising industry.
