When you are setting up your order, you may get to choose between Canvas and Sheeting. So the 1st step is deciding which fabric you  need.

Sheeting vs. Canvas

Cotton sheeting is a thinner fabric that is lightweight and durable. It is commonly used for for promotional events, or for lightweight totes (e.g. grocery bags). 

Sheeting Specs:

 - Weight: 145 GSM

 - Density : 60 x 60

 - Yarn Type: 20 x 20

Cotton canvas is a thicker fabric that holds its shape better (especially on bags with gussets). It is also used in our Aprons, and in our crossbody bags.

Canvas Specs:

 - Weight: 310 GSM

 - Density : 60 x 60

 - Yarn Type: 20 x 20

Ok, I know which fabric I want. What are my other choices?

There are a few more choices when choosing fabric. The main decision is whether the fabric is combed or uncombed, and whether it is raw or washed. To simplify the process for you, when you order online we use certain default choices, but if you would like to discussing a different spec, contact us at

What are the defaults?

Combed vs. Uncombed

Combed cotton is a softer version of regular uncombed cotton. It’s made by further treating the cotton after it’s been picked, then spun into yarn. Because of the work that is added to the cotton, combed cotton tends to be noticeably smoother and shinier when the cotton is undyed.

We use combed cotton for all undyed fabric since the fabric has a glossier color. However, some customers prefer to use uncombed cotton to get a rougher and more "natural" texture. Once cotton is dyed, the difference between combed and uncombed is less noticeable, and so we used uncombed cotton when dyeing the fabric.

Raw vs. Washed

Washing is a process by which cotton fabric is relaxed to make it feel softer. While raw cotton will gain a softer texture over time, washing cotton results in a softer fabric right away. We wash all our fabric by default, but there are times when customers will want to use raw, natural cotton for their product. If so, just let us know!
