  • Hispano Tex launches new fabric for printing

    Lienzo, a natural printbase

    Along with all the trends we are publishing for Spring/Summer 2018 collection now in September, we have developed a new fine natural fabric for printing called Lienzo, which means “artistic canvas” in Spanish.

    Lienzo is a plain woven canvas style fabric with 80% BCI cotton (Better Cotton Initiative) and 20% of linen/cotton combined yarn, a 100% natural organic and biodegradable print base with a soft touch and fall, totally breathable, with 160 grams produced in our standard width of 280cm.

    We will be using soon Lienzo in many collection prints from now on, first one is Series Poetic, which trend we published just last month (check this series)

    While most producers of the world produce flat-woven linen/cotton fabrics consumed mainly in plain colors, most of worldwide printers are still going with the traditional cotton/polyester blends (commonly known as “lonetas” in the cheap market) and only a few decide to provide a natural cotton canvas.

    Yet, Hispano Tex innovates by bringing to the market a unique canvas fabric made of natural yarns only, both cotton and linen: so you get the benefits of the cotton, but the looks of the linen.

    Washing and care instructions

    In Hispano Tex we are aware of the importance of washing and care instructions in all our fabrics, for this reason we want to give you an overview of the key fabric categories, information about care symbols and the value of correct drying and finishing procedures.

    So let's go through the most common types of fabrics —from natural fibers to synthetic ones— and learn the proper way to wash and care for each of them. It is critical this information is clear to all our clients so you can include the correct washing and care instructions in the finished manufactured items containing Hispano Tex fabrics.

    Cotton

    Cotton is probably the most popular fabric in the world. It is a natural fibre, easily washed and/or dry cleaned. Cotton fabrics are usually strong and one of the most durable made of natural yarns. It is also very absorbent and easy to work with. It does have a tendency to wrinkle very easily, hence the popularity of cotton-polyester blends.

    For more specific information, please click here to see the technical sheet for a nature cotton fabric called MICADO, which is done with BCI organic cotton.

    Linen

    Linen is a natural cellulosic fibre that is very strong and irons nicely. It is often used for tablecloths, sheets, and curtains. But lately it is used also for upholstery and cushions…

    Linen has a nice fall and a fresh touch. Absorption is lower than in Cotton but linen yarns are quite resistant. As all other natural fabrics, linen fabrics must be washed according to recommendations in order to avoid shading or shrinkages.

    Check our complete technical sheet here.

    Polyester

    Polyester is a strong and durable synthetic fabric made of plastic. It is very durable and has a high wrinkle resistance make it one of the most commonly used fabrics in the world. It dries quickly and can be washable in warm wash cycle, so check our technical sheet here.

    Poly-Cotton

    Poly-Cotton is made by combining yarns of cotton and polyester. With this combination we obtain the benefits from both materials: natural effects of cotton for softness and moisture absorption with the no-iron wrinkles of polyester. Most of the times you have a dominant fibre in the fabric. Check here our technical sheet for detailed information for poly-cotton fabrics.

    Acrylic

    Acrylic is another synthetic fabric, very popular because of their ability to retain their shape and texture after washing and drying.

    Due to its synthetic construction, acrylic is machine washable. It's best to use a warm wash cycle and you can iron if needed—just use a medium heat setting. Check our detailed instruction here.
