High-Quality Monkscloth Fabric That Lasts

We’ve sourced high-quality materials to achieve an authentic and comfortable material for your projects. Aside from using high-quality cotton, we leverage tried-and-tested manufacturing techniques to create sturdy monk’s cloth. This results in strong weaves that can withstand punch needles, making our monk’s cloth the ideal partner for punch needle designs. 

Our monk’s cloth fabric comes in a timeless beige color. This desaturated color serves as the ideal base for your designs. Whether you’re creating a Scandinavian pillowcase or intricate geometric shapes, the coloring won’t be too intrusive or attention-catching.

The details are essential, especially if you’re sending pillowcases or aprons to discerning customers. That’s why even the edges of our monk’s cloth have whipstitched ends. The finishing adds a touch of elegance. The work looks cleaner and feels as though more effort was put into the creation.

Another advantage of the whipstitched ends is added durability. The weave reinforces the fabric, so fraying won’t be an issue. You can work on the fabric for as long as you need, and it won’t unravel on the edges. Your customers will also enjoy the added structural integrity, adding to their satisfaction with your products.

Monkscloth Suitable for an Array of Applications

Our monkscloth is the ideal foundation for creative designs. Since it is strong and can take on a beating, the material can be used for various needlework methods.

  • Punch Needle: Our monk’s cloth has tight yet uniform weaves. Thanks to this structure, you can easily use punch needles for intricate and textured projects. The needle will glide smoothly and retract without snagging. Enjoy exploring pile heights without having to worry about your yarn from popping up.

  • Rug Punch: Rug punch works similarly to punch needle embroidery. The same benefits apply — sturdier substrate, resilient weaves, and added durability. The monk’s cloth offers the best base for complex and ambitious designs.

  • Machine Embroidery: If you’re not going the completely handmade route, our monk’s cloth can still hold up to sewing machines. The material has smooth and consistent weaves, ensuring complete and easy control. You can be confident that the fabric will allow the sewing machine to produce the designs you’re looking for.

  • DIY Cloth: From beautiful pillowcases to lovely aprons, the monk’s cloth fabric can be used to create DIY apparel and furniture covers. The item is the perfect material for enthusiasts with lots of time for DIY projects. On the other hand, monk’s cloth is manageable enough for beginners. It’s adaptable and easy to handle, giving you more wiggle room for mistakes.
