Our Mulmul Soft Muslin is super lightweight, at only 55gsm.

It has a naturally loose yarn which helps give your personalised muslin fabric design a rustic look, without impacting the quality of the print. Recommended for printing bold, bright colours it is advised to avoid very fine details due to the open weave construction of the textile. As this mesh fabric is made from synthetic fibres, despite still having the appearance and soft feel that original muslin has, it has added strength and durability; you can even wash it in the machine at 30° with the rest of your laundry. This material is perfect for flowing dresses, soft scarves and shawls, net curtains and even general crafting.

What is Muslin Fabric?

Muslin fabric has many different uses. It is a fabric that is made using a plain weave, and it gets it's name from the city of Mosul in northern Iraq, which is possibly where it was first manufactured. Muslin is fine, soft, and lightweight. Is it used as a French polishing pad for shellac polishing, and is the traditional material for the cloth wrapped around a Christmas pudding. It is also the material that beekeepers use to filter melted beeswax through when they are cleaning it of debris and foreign particles. It is even used in cerebrovascular neurosurgery, to wrap around intracranial vessels or aneurysms that are at risk of bleeding, to reinforce and prevent rupture. In more recent years, muslin has become a popular choice for newborns, especially due to its soft and strong nature. Muslin squares are a popular essential with new babies. Known as a mother's best friend, they are so versatile that they don't have one specific purpose; used as bibs, dribble-cloths, comforters, sunshades or for lining cold changing mats, they really do have unlimited uses. 

How your Personalised Muslin Fabric is Finished

We offer multiple ways for you to receive your printed muslin fabric; these options are presented to you in our simple-to-use, intuitive online design tool. After we have permanently bonded your print on muslin fabric, we can either send it to you "As is" with a white border around the edges; exactly as it comes from the printer. If you would prefer, we can "Cut on the Line" your personalised muslin fabric; one of our experts will cut all the white edging from the fabric, leaving only the part with your print. 

Another option is to have your custom printed muslin fabric hemmed. One of our experienced seamstresses will stitch one of two hems around the entirety of your personalised muslin fabric. This will be done here in our studio. You will have the choice of either an overlocked hem, which is stitched completely over the edge of the material, or a baby hem with a straight stitch. As Mulmul Soft Muslin is a lightweight material, your hem will be a two-fold hem, and will take up around 6-8 mm of each of the four sides (totalling 24-32 mm all the way around) so make sure that you account for this when providing your measurements. You can choose between black or white thread for either of the hemming options. 


Make a Collage

If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.

Hints and Tips

  • The more images you add to your collage the smaller each image will be. Fewer images will be larger and give you more clarity and detail.
  • The more people in an image, the less detail there will be. If you have 10 images of a group of five friends, each person will be smaller than if you have 10 images of just one person.
  • Try to make sure that the longest side of each image is around 10 centimetres. There is a handy ruler built into the design tool to help you with this.
  • Smaller products will not be able to fit as many images as larger ones will.

All of our fabrics are digitally printed

This is done using more than one type of printing method. Custom printed muslin fabric, printed in our studio, is hand made using your designs with a fast turnaround. Every printing method that we use will bond your personalised design to your printed muslin fabric, in full glorious colour. We decide on how to print on muslin fabric by the type of material it is; natural fabrics lend themselves to a pigment printing method, whereas our synthetic materials (including Mulmul soft Muslin) are printed using a technique known as dye sublimation. Dye sublimation is a two part process which involves first printing your personalised muslin fabric design onto a transfer sheet, then using heat to permanently bond this and create your printed muslin fabric.

Please note: Due to the delicate nature of the fabric, some pulls are to be expected and this is not out of the ordinary. The loose yarn of the fabrics means your design may vary in shape.
