Above all, whatever their sector of activity, customers will appreciate high-quality, customisable household and bath linens. They’ll like them soft and absorbent for hotels and Thalasso centres, quick-drying for gyms, stylish and in a range of colourways for beach shops…

Don’t forget the eco-responsibility dimension, which is becoming increasingly important for many brands. Organic or recycled materials, or French manufacturing: these are unbeatable arguments when it comes to convincing your customers.

How do I customise linens?

As we mentioned earlier, customised support automatically adds value in the eyes of customers. The item suddenly looks unique, original and special.

Customising accessories and textiles undeniably creates a strong connection between the customer and the brand. Every detail counts! Typography, motif, colour… everything needs to be thought through so that each customised piece is consistent with the overall branding, creating the desired impact.

Here are a few tips on choosing the right customisation technique for your linens:

  • embroidery offers an elegant look that lasts over time and is wash-resistant. Our recommendations? Choosethread colours that contrast with the background (for example, black writing on a white bathrobe), and opt for handwritten typography.
  • digital transfer or printing can be used to apply fairly complex designs. A strong asset if the visual contains a lot of detail. For example, this technique would be perfect for a sports facility keen to offer microfibre towels to its members, decorated with the club’s logo.
  • customised labelling is ideal for a subtle, discreet look. It will keep the piece of textile “intact” and will be perfect for a textile shop or distributor who wants to brand the product without altering its original design.

Of course, the examples presented here are just a sample of the many ways you can customise your linens.

Customised towels for a sporting event, a bathrobe embroidered with a first name for a birthday present, napkins bearing the image of a trendy brasserie… You name it, the possibilities are endless!

A final word of advice: always think about how the product will be used, so that you can offer your customers relevant options.

Intensive use? Frequent washing? Tumble-drying or air-drying? … all these parameters are important when choosing the right material, the right colour and the right marking technique.

Silkscreen printing, a form of artistic expression:

Let’s talk about art!

Let’s start with how the Larousse dictionary describes art:

“Any activity or product of human activity that aims to express an idea or emotion through the creation of an artwork, whatever the manner and means, including sounds, languages, gestures, the environment, etc.”.

Doesn’t this remind you of a familiar process in the textile industry?
