Double gauze is quite simply a combination of two layers of gauze, which are sewn together with small stitches, which is not visible on one side of the material, so this side is, by definition, on the outside of the garments.We prefer to use organic cotton double gauze for summer clothes, as it is one of the most airy materials, which is pleasant to wear even in the hottest weather, and its slightly wrinkled surface creates an interesting texture.

Wool felt is one of the oldest man-made textiles.Wool is particularly suitable for felting, much better than synthetic fibers.It has properties such asthe unique durability and resilience.The waviness of the fibers provides natural elasticity.This flexibility makes it resistant, while the outer covering of the fibers forms a protective film layer, which is the key to its wear resistance.Lanolin, the thin waxy coating on wool fibers, makes wool waterproof and light-resistant.Wool can be dyed well, as the natural dyes penetrate up to the middle of the fiber and the color becomes intense and permanent.

What are its advantages?
- excellent heat insulator
- naturally dirt- and water-repellent
- fireproof, self-extinguishing
- renewable resource

Recycled materials at Printa


Post consumer upcycling is the part of recycling when we transform an existing, used garment and create a new garment with added value.This method is widely used in the DIY community and Printa as well: in recent years we have reached a very high level of production, recycling more than two tons of men's shirts in this way.And why did you choose men's shirts? Their raw material is good, their shape and size are predictable, so they are also suitable for small series production.Tunics, tops, accessories, clothing inserts and pillow dolls are also made from them.


We recycle leather almost from the beginning.Our first leather products were leather bags, which we created from old leather jackets.For us, leather is a valuable and high-quality raw material, the lifespan of which we consider important to extend.


All over the world, a lot of textiles become waste before they are used, sometimes due to minor manufacturing errors or wasteful design.We entered into cooperation with a Hungarian textile mill, from which we receive defective cotton materials.After that, we either avoid the error or use it by incorporating it into the design.This is why this type of recycling is called pre-use recycling.


Our knitted goods are made from 100% recycled, so-called regenerated cotton yarn.We knit the material in Hungarian knitting, with an exciting honeycomb pattern, from which we then make your favorite sweaters and knitted pants.


Obtaining old woolen yarn is very difficult.A real scavenger hunt when we find it, it happens that we find it in the closet of a familiar grandmother.Our hand-knitted hats are all made from old woolen yarn.


One of the most beautiful versions of linen is vintage linen, which was still made by hand weaving.It is very expensive and you can rarely find it, but if you get it, the material definitely carries extra value.We usually use it to make bags, jackets and belts.



OEKO-TEX textile and leather products and accessories used on them (threads, buttons, zippers, Velcro, labels, etc.) developed for the examination and certification system according to human ecological aspects.It prescribes the still permissible amount of chemical substances in materials used in the textile and clothing industry, which do not pose a danger to the human body.Accredited testing institutes belonging to the international OEKO-TEX Organization are responsible for qualifying the products from this point of view and then regularly check whether the products that have obtained the OEKO-TEX certificate continuously meet the prescribed requirements.All this ensures that products bearing the OEKO-TEX distinctive mark are not harmful to health.


GOTS aims to define a universal standard for organic fabrics - from cotton growing and harvesting, through environmentally and socially responsible (Fair Trade) production to labeling - in order to provide credible assurance to consumers.The standards apply to yarns, fabrics and garments and cover the production, processing, manufacture, packaging, labelling, export, import and distribution of all natural fiber products.GOTS offers a continuous quality control and certification system from the cotton fields to the store shelves.The GOTS-certified material is therefore much more than just a textile made from organic cotton.It is one of the most comprehensive and rigorous certifications, which is why it is so difficult to obtain.


The USDA Certified Organic certification can only be awarded to products that contain 100% or at least 95% organic ingredients, i.e. ingredients from organic farming and processed organically.During the organic certification, the entire production system is examined: the place of production, the fields, and the production lines are checked with continuous sampling.When you buy a USDA-certified product, you can be sure that every single ingredient has been carefully and rigorously inspected.
