46 • A&E MID-MAY 2019 A variety of poly linen products has recently been introduced including accessory bags, tote bags, aprons, pla- cemats, and more. Made of sturdy 95 percent polyester/5 percent cotton, the linen products combine the rustic appeal of natural-colored linen with the full-color imaging capabilities of dye-sub transfer. Using standard sublimation equip- ment, decorators can transfer vin- tage-inspired images onto the prod- ucts to create a classic, relaxed look, or transfer dramatic, full-color images to produce a modern eclectic feel.
