Below we have explored the steps to follow in order to receive your first Silk Scarf Collection.

Steps to Creating your own Silk Scarf

1. Consultation Time

Stop by our silk fabric shop and showroom for a consultation and assess which Silk Fabric would best suit your print. Our consultation will also help determine which size fabric is best for the artwork you have in mind.

2. Artwork ready for Print

Once you have your artwork prepared for print, it can be sent to us via We Transfer - ideally as an:

  • AI /
  • JPG/
  • PSD/
  • or PDF File over 300 dpi.

3. Print and Silk Samples

From there, we will create samples to establish that you are happy with the way the digital printing reacts to a particular weight and weave of the silk you have chosen.

4. Selecting a Hand/Machine Hem for your Scarf

We offer a hand roll hem, as well as machine roll hem which is included in the pricing structure.

The benefits of Digital printing are endless:

When artwork is printed onto silk, it becomes multi-dimensional and can be used to accent any attire.

High Quality Digital Printing

Silk absorbs and receives colors the best out of all fabrics.

Digital printing now enables us to print complicated designs and artwork or photographs directly onto silk with fantastic results. The more complicated the design, the more effective the printing.

No Minimum Order

One scarf, two scarfs, three scarfs, four?

There is no minimum order, making this the perfect gift for a loved one. Bring your children’s drawings to life by having them printed onto silk.

Cost Effective Options

As cost-effective alternatives to 100% silk, we offer silk blends for digital printing such as silk cotton, silk linen voile, silk viscose.

Strike Through

The “Strike Through” is the transfer of color and print to both sides of the fabric.

Digital print is topical and therefore depending on the weight of the chosen silk fabric, the percentage of Strike Through averages at 70%.

Delivery Time

Depending on the size of your order, delivery time is typically 1 month.
