Cotton and canvas bags - Cotton Barons

Terms and Conditions

Production

Our cotton products are made in European Union. We cooperate with several trusted fabric wholesalers who import cotton or threads from EU and outside.

Cotton Products

We guarantee to choose the best quality fabric available on our market. It is worth noticing that: - Natural cotton is an untreated fabric that may contain some flaws (dirt) or tiny knots. There might be difference in the way the material is woven which may result in the transparency of the fabric. The quality of the raw cotton fabric may vary from order to order. Different mechanical wrinkles can occur during production and rolling 280gsm natural colour cotton. These folds cannot be removed due to the nature of the fabric. As cotton is all-natural material, it does shrink in the wash and is rather susceptible to wrinkles. The products are all handmade, therefore there might be difference in size (+/ - 1cm) and shape of the bags within one order. The exact length of the handles cannot be guaranteed and the difference might exceed ( + / -2 cm).

Colour of the Fabric

The customers have to take into consideration that the colour of the fabric may slightly vary from the one presented on Cotton Barons’ website. The Clients have to note that the Pantone Chart is for guidance purposes only. All monitor displays vary and the colour of the fabric has no true representation of the colour chart provided. Please request the fabric sample if you have precise specification regarding the colour. Please note that the colour of the fabric may vary from order to order in terms of the shade.

Labels

The customers who wish to have our care label sewn into the product, are advised to inform us about it when placing the order.

Products Care

Our products are used as promotional products. It is advised to hand wash them in 30 C degrees.

Plain Samples

As all our products are made to order we are unable to store every size, shape and colour of the bag. We promise to send the nearest size available. If there is specific request for the sample the client is asked to make a payment.

On-line Proof

On-line proof is provided in order to present the artwork position and indicate the Pantone colours. The client is responsible for checking all proofs/artwork (including accuracy and layout)/specifications. Approved artwork cannot be amended. Colour variations are possible due to different monitor displays. Please order the printed sample if you have precise specification regarding the colour.

Printing Services

The print on the textile differs from the one printed on any other medias and the results should not be compared. Water inks are absorbed by the fabric, what may cause the change of the printed colour. Within one batch of the products it is likely for the artwork to vary in the position on the products (+ / -1cm). It is due to the production process and the nature of the cotton fabric. The 280gsm cotton fabric is characterised by the raised diagonal lines. Rough texture may result in not 100% ink coverage. Due to loose weave of the 150gsm cotton fabric there might be tiny gaps in the artwork printed. The artwork is printed according to Pantone C Matching System and it is matched as accurately as possible. However due to nature of the textile products there is an allowance for tone difference between specified Pantone and the printed artwork. Print location changes after the item is placed in the bag.
