Introducing Eco-Gauze

By Alternative
April 11, 2017



We strive to set ourselves apart through continuous fabric innovation, and we're excited to introduce our newest fabric for Spring '17: Eco-Gauze. This breathable and feminine fabric is knit loose to create a feather-light weight and flowy fit paired with the oh-so-soft hand feel that customers have come to expect from us. Soft, simple and sustainable, 100% of the polyester used in Eco-Gauze is recycled, so the wearer can look good and feel even better.

Eco-Gauze is offered in 4 wonderfully flowy and comfortable styles that pair perfectly with the softness and natural drape of our airy, knit gauze fabric. Given the relaxed nature of the fabric, all silhouettes in the collection are offered in 2 sizes that fit most (XS/S & M/L). These beautifully light and versatile styles are perfect for wearing to or from the gym or as an effortlessly cool layering piece.

The 5 colors featured in the collection also play on the light and feminine feel of the fabric. Eco-Gauze styles are offered in White Mist, Rose Quartz, Grey Storm, Tidal Blue and Caviar. All of these light colors are great for printing with water-based inks (just be sure to follow printing guidelines for any poly-blend fabric) for a perfectly soft, yet durable print.





  • Suggested Ink: Water-based
  • Suggested Design Tip: Distressed or Vintage-looking artwork
  • Suggested Temperature: 170º C, between 45 sec to 60 sec through printing oven (size and quality of oven are a determining factor)
  • Other printing methods: Digital and sublimation prints could work, transfer could pass through fabric due to high pressure and temperature. Embroidery can be used, but should not be too thick as it could create holes after washing. Test recommended.



These styles are perfect for gyms, yoga studios, concerts, festivals and clothing brands. Shop the newest Eco-Gauze Collection to see what makes this fabrication a must-have for 2017.
