Their fabric is printed as it is ordered with environmentally friendly inks and their is never any waste.

They use a high quality pre-shrunk cotton that is stronger and softer than most cotton fabric. Because the fabric is printed on demand, the colors won’t be faded and will arrive vibrant and crisp.
Modern Yardage has a team of talented designers and artists to create on trend unique fabric on the spot. They are constantly posting brand new prints from this talented group of individuals. The designers are given a freedom that is unheard of in the fabric industry. Many designs are offered in multiple scales and colors, so you can get the exact print you’re looking for.
