Description

This waterproof Polyurethane Laminate Fabric (also known as PUL fabric) has been inspired by traditional ikat fabric designs. Originating from Southeast Asia, Ikat fabrics are made by dyeing the yarns before they are woven together to make intricate patterns. This makes for a pattern which takes on a perfectly imperfect look – repeated patterns with soft blurred edges and very slight variations throughout, in a similar way to a mosaic.

This pattern not only mimics the ikat style of design but it has also added in a woven appearance, making this PUL fabric look much thicker and heavier than it really is, which adds opportunities to hide your waterproof requirements and make it look like a vintage style woven fabric is being used instead. This could be perfect for sewing projects like wheelchair cushions or armchair covers.

The main colours in this pattern are bright and joyful. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and black pop out boldly against a gentle a creamy white background. Geometric shapes intertwine as diamonds are within diamonds, which are surrounded by stripes, stepped patterns and scroll style swirls. The diamonds are arranged in stripes of different colours and sizes, creating a feeling of movement and flow as it guides your eyes across the lines.

PUL fabric is not only waterproof, but also breathable, soft, lightweight, and possesses a slight stretch. This makes it perfect for a whole range of sewing projects like swimming bags, washable nappy covers, waterproof trousers, reusable sanitary products and much more

This PUL fabric holds a food-safe certification. This means that it has been tested against stringent standards for contact with food items. This opens up a whole new world of sewing fun, as it is possible to safely make sewing projects like snack bags, lunch bags, food storage sacks, or reusable food wraps. However, it is important to note that direct contact with hot food or heat sources such as microwaves or ovens may damage the fabric so is not recommended.

This polyurethane laminate fabric measures approximately 150cm (59 inches) wide. It is available in both per-meter and half-meter lengths. Any combinations of these sizes or multiple quantities will be sent out as one long continuous piece of fabric. A smaller fat quarter size, measuring approximately 50cm x 50cm (19 ½ x 19 ½ inches), is also available.

To increase the lifespan of this fabric and keep the blues vibrant, we recommend washing it at or below 30°C. Please be aware that PUL fabrics may have a wider selvedge. The lamination may not cover the entire selvedge edge or may slightly overlap it. This does not affect the usable width of the fabric.

For more inspiration and tips on sewing with PUL fabrics, we have also written a PUL fabric guide that we hope you’ll find helpful.
