Our cotton fabrics are woven from 100% USA cotton, printed in color on one side and are at least 1.45 m wide. Weight approx. 150 g/m². They all meet the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, which is tested by independent OEKO-TEX® institutes on the basis of a comprehensive OEKO-TEX® criteria catalog. The testing for harmful substances of this standard guarantees the harmlessness of our cotton fabrics. They are intended for skin contact without hesitation. Our cotton fabrics are not extensively chemically pre-treated, are not pre-washed and have the character and strength of natural cotton.
Our fabrics are produced by digital printing and require very gentle care, compared to woven fabrics or even fabrics produced by other printing methods. Therefore, please follow the gentle care instructions from us. We have deliberately chosen digital printing because it is the only way to transfer the illustrations with their loving, detailed depictions faithfully and photorealistically onto the cotton. The fabrics are wonderful for interior decorations of all kinds and especially beautiful for children's clothing. For outdoor decoration or curtains, our cotton fabrics are not suitable due to low light resistance. This is due to the special printing process.
In order to enjoy our fabrics for a long time, we recommend you to wash them inside out to avoid color abrasion. Please wash at 30 degrees, preferably with a mild or color detergent. Our cotton fabrics can naturally shrink up to 5-7%. Therefore, we recommend washing our fabrics before sewing (especially in combination with other materials). In the dryer the fabrics can shrink additionally and this damages the print. A high spin cycle puts additional stress on the fabric and is not recommended by us. Especially for the fabrics with high color content, such as dark polka dots, visible creases may remain.
The same applies to our beautiful 100% cotton interlock jersey. Weight 215 g/m².
Please iron our jersey only on a low setting in the direction of the stitches. The jersey is best washed in the gentle cycle and then dried lying so that the fabric does not bulge or sag. When sewing, it is recommended to use a superfine jersey needle with a ball point, otherwise there is a risk of damaging the fabric thread when sewing, causing the fabric to unravel.
In the acufactum fabrics online store you will find a nice selection of linen. Our high quality embroidery linen is a German product, which the weaving mill Weddingen produces for us. Creative sewing projects can be realized with our dyed, non-countable linen. The dense fabric is suitable for decorative design, as well as tablecloths and runners.
Our linen ribbons are manufactured in Wuppertal. In many of our books you will find matching embroidery and design suggestions to further process. But also simply hemmed as a table runner or processed into noble cushions and curtains they are simply beautiful.
