Design your own custom printed muslin fabric. Personalised muslin fabric is a classic muslin weave with a modern twist. It has the lightness of cotton, as well as the soft-touch and beautiful drape, yet the strength and durability of poly. With an open-sett construction that is net like, Mulmul Soft Muslin is made from synthetic fibres.

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

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.
