Cotton Bee: A Passion for Printing

For years fabric printing was a service available exclusively for brands in the fashion and home decor industry, with sewists and crafters only dreaming of having custom-printed fabrics available for their projects. However, with the new arrival of print stores, that didn’t require large minimum orders, came the era of creative liberty for individuals too.

How It All Began

Back in 2013, finding a fabric print shop that could fulfil a small order was a tricky business. And it was this gap in the market that sparked the launch of CottonBee, the first shop in Poland to offer printing services, without the need to order full rolls of material. What began as a small-scale startup, focused on offering custom fabrics to individual clients, quickly grew to an established business that now supplies custom printed fabrics to sewing enthusiasts throughout Europe.

Fabric Printing For Everybody

From ordering via a catalogue to uploading handcrafted designs, samples, short runs and individual orders can now be printed fast and in a cost-efficient manner. The opportunities are endless to create unique garments, accessories or home decor items, while creating an exciting variety for handmade artists and people wanting to take their sewing projects to the next level too.

What Can You Create With Custom Fabrics?

Custom printed knitted and woven cotton fabrics have a vast variety of uses. Pigment ink printing can be used to create custom textiles for a whole array of kids' products, from clothing to soft toys and blankets. While both knitted and woven fabrics can be used for any type of garment you’d like – from dress shirts and jumpers to leggings, T-shirts and much, much more. Fabrics printed with pigment ink are great for almost every home decor application there is. They make stunning throw pillows, curtains or bed linen. You could even print famous artworks and frame them to create the art gallery in your living room. If you’re into scrapbooking or journaling, you could also embellish your cover with printed fabrics or create a custom version for a traveller’s journal or planner.

Sustainable Fabric Printing

From the very beginning, CottonBee’s mission has been to offer fabric printing for small to medium-sized sewing businesses, and hobbyists seeking sustainably-produced materials. All fabrics in CottonBee’s offer are locally sourced and made from cotton with OEKO-TEX certificates. The entire process of printing is waterless and does not require the use of chemical substances. The finished product is great for sensitive skin and can be used for making baby clothing, accessories and much more. With pigment ink fabric printing you are able to create something unique in the most cost-effective way possible. With no minimum order policy, you won’t waste any fabrics, since you can order just enough printed fabrics for a single project.
