Calico Plain Cotton


Calico Plain Cotton is a traditional fabric popular for a range of at home crafts such as quilting, and homewares including cushions, aprons and light upholstery. 

The plain woven, light weight textile is much lighter than our canvas and drill fabrics and a great value option for first time fabric printers. It is one of our most popular and versatile fabrics.

Our cotton fabrics are printed in one of the most eco-friendly ways possible, using Digital Pigment inks. Our printing requires no water in the printing process, and uses around 95% less energy than traditional screen printing.

Great product!

I had a very easy, and enjoyable experience creating my own textile, and after ordering, my product arrived quickly and it came out great. Highly recommend!

What a service!

Very last minute I decided to design a fabric for my sister-in-law to make a tote and make up bag set. I was worried I’d left it too late but maake came to the rescue! Once I got to grips with their pattern maker the whole process was super easy. I thought the price was good and it got delivered SO fast! I was delighted.

The only thing was the colour of the print faded quite a bit when I washed it (at 30 degrees), which was a bit disappointing given it was a bright yellow and black print. But it was still beautiful.

Thank you so much ☺️ I was surprising my mum with some fabric for Mother’s Day and it was perfect! She loved it and it will soon become curtains!

Own print fabric

Great to be able to print my own designs onto fabric to make into Christmas cards. The fabric quality and printing is excellent. This is the second time I've used Maake to print my own designs and it will be my 'go to' site in the future. Fast delivery too.
