How do I wash my Chawel?

Wash in cold water with regular detergent. Avoid bleach and heavy detergents. Hang to dry.

Don’t use bleach, dryer sheets or fabric softener. Rewash if you use a dryer sheet or fabric softener.

Can I Screen Print on Chawels?

Keep in mind when designing your print that screen printing will block the moisture absorption reducing the fabric’s effectiveness as a towel. If you want to screen print, use water-based inks if possible and print only small areas and open space.

We screen print on the Chawel carry bag, showing that it can be done. We can also do special orders starting at minimums of 100 pieces, as set up charges are the most expensive part of the printing process.

If you have your own printer with screens already made, that would be your best money saving option.

Contact us HERE if you have anymore questions.
