Fabric and Finishing
Our custom printed silk scarves are made from 100% silk habotai fabric. They are light and airy and our special print process allows the print to be seen thru both sides of the scarf.
We finish our scarves with a machine rolled baby hem. The finishing is durable and smooth. Based on the colours in your artwork, our sewing team will use their discretion to choose grey, black, or white thread.
Important Notes on Printing on Silk: Colours and More
There are a few things that are important to know when printing on silk. We print with pigment inks that are about 95-98% washable on our silks. There will be some fading, but it will be minimal. Also, depending on the colours in your design, our printer may not be able to match your artwork colours perfectly. Pigment inks, due to the binder that makes them washable, tend to narrow the acheivable colour range of the printer. Silk fabric itself also has some natural characteristics that may effect your scarves. Silk is a natural fabric made from the fibers of silkworm cocoons. It can have natural flaws or consistencies that are unavoidable from it’s manufacturing process.
