There are many types of printed fabrics according to the different materials and manufacturing processes of the fabrics. According to different printing process equipment can be divided into: manual printing, including batik, tie-dye, hand-painted printing, etc., and machine printing, there are transfer printing, cylinder printing, screen printing.


In modern clothing design, the design of printed patterns is no longer limited by craftsmanship, and there is more room for imagination and design. Women's clothing can be designed with romantic flowers, colorful stripes and other patterns to be used in dresses to show femininity and temperament.

They are mostly casual clothing, highlighting the mature and stable sense of men.


The use of printed fabrics is wide, not only in apparel design, but also in home textiles.

So how to wash printed fabrics?

Soak a corner of the printed fabric first, and then wipe it with a white cloth at the printing place. If the white cloth is dyed, it means that the printing is faded.

1. Be sure to wash properly, do not soak, rinse with cold water alone, and dehydrate and dry. If bleeding occurs accidentally, rinse thoroughly again immediately.

2. If possible, send dry cleaning.

3. If you accidentally get edible oil, you can scrub with detergent as soon as possible; for industrial oil stains, scrub with pine perfume or gasoline, and then rinse with detergent and water (do not use hot water).

4. Salt water immersion method: It is most suitable for faded clothes. If there is a slight discoloration, you can soak it in fresh saline for 10 minutes before washing each time. If you continue to do this, the clothes will never fade.

5. Anti-drying method: Most of the fabric clothes cannot be directly irradiated by the sun, because ultraviolet rays are the culprit of clothes fading, so you should not only dry them in reverse, and try to prevent them from being ventilated.
