This silk alternative is a gorgeously smooth poly blend made of spun yarns, a plain closed weave construct that is solid once finished. It slightly allows light to pass through if shone from behind, and has some elasticity. Strong and durable.
Real Silk Satin
This is our 100% genuine, natural silk. This lightweight custom made silk fabric weighs 85gsm and is made of a satin weave, with an organzine warp, using crepe twist yarn. This is a semi-transparent, taut fabric which has no elasticity.
A classic Muslin weave with a modern twist. Made from synthetic fibres, this fabric has the lightness and soft touch of cotton with the strength and durability of polyester. A lightweight plain woven fabric with an “open-sett” net like construction, similar to cheesecloth. Due to the delicate nature of the MulMul Soft Music fabric, some pulls are to be expected and this is not out of the ordinary.
Our Silk Georgette is 100% natural silk. This lightweight sheer fabric has a tight weave of spun yarn, which creates an overall gossamer appearance due to the extremely thin threads. Silk Georgette is transparent with a light airy quality to it, showing its delicate fragile qualities. Super soft to touch, you will get sharp colours and permanent print.
This is a soft and silky fabric which is slightly thinner than Georgette. Weighing 40gsm, Paris Chiffon is sheer, light and cool with a magnified net-like build. It's perfect for lightweight summer designs. Made using a plain weave, it has a certain amount of stretch.
Custom Headscarf Handmade To Order
Everything we do is individually made to order in the Contrado facilities. A team of artisan seamstresses and textile experts handle your custom printed hijabs with care and precision, ensuring it's finished to the highest of standards.
Please note: As all of our scarves are handmade to order, there will be some variance in the dimensions of the scarf. A predictable amount of shrinkage is likely to occur, this is normal and to be expected, and will be more apparent in the natural fabrics.
Style It With
Your stylish custom headscarf is so versatile. Wear as a hijab paired with a neutral shirt to make it into a real statement piece, or let it drape elegantly around your head like a shayla for the ultimate summer style. The headscarf doesn't have to be for faith reasons, as you can experiment with different styles such as wearing as an evening shawl or a hippy style head wrap. Because of the different sizes, you can create headscarves that have varying degrees of coverage, allowing you to be flexible with your presentation.
We offer 2 hem types for your scarf. Baby hem uses 8mm of material on each side, folded twice then a top stitch approximately 2-3mm from the edge. The 3 thread overlock trims off 3mm fabric, and has an overlock edge stitch.
Are they machine washable?
For the natural fabrics, we recommend dry cleaning only, but for the poly-blend fabrics, we recommend using a delicate or cold wash to ensure the longevity of the scarf and keep the print and textile in perfect condition.
What is the most commonly used size for a headscarf?
The most common size is 90 x 90 cm. However, it all comes down to how intricately you want to wrap your headscarf. We offer 5 custom sizes and will introduce more soon. However, do contact us if you have a specific size requirement and we will be happy to help.

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi; this means that no resizing of your file occurs, preventing any interpolation. Our design interface will have a quality marker next to the design that you have uploaded, this will change colour using a traffic light system and display a message. The message will let you know if the resolution is too low or if you have a good quality image.
How will my image scale?
When you upload your design our system will automatically scale it to fit your chosen fabric dimensions. In the ‘Product Image’ tab, the displayed dimensions under ‘Print Size’ will show the dimensions of the piece of fabric that you are ordering. For image/design dimensions you need to see the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab. You can see and edit the dimensions of the image under the quality information next to the thumbnail.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What is gsm?
Grams per square meter (gsm) is the unit of measurement used to measure the weight of a paper or fabric. This measurement uses the weight of one square metre (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a fabric. We classify fabrics of 10-100gsm as light (fabrics for summer, fine silk), fabrics of 101-249gsm as medium (most fabrics for clothing) and fabrics of more than 250gsm as thick (upholstery and other specialised fabrics).
What is the bleed area?
When creating your product, it is important to make sure that your image is a little wider than the size needed. In printing, the bleed area allows you to obtain a borderless print. We would advise filling the blead areas, maked with a red checkered area, to ensure you don't end up with white edges. You should make sure that you do not put important details within the bleed area as these will quite likely be lost.
What is crocking and why might it occur?
Crocking, which is fading along the creases, often after washing or heavy use, occurs when you digitally print on natural fabrics - more so when dark or dense colours are used. It can be minimised by using a cool hand wash instead of machine washing as the tumbling of the machine is the main cause of this. To avoid entirely, we would advise using a poly fabric.
Why do my colours appear lighter on organic fabrics?
Our organic fabrics do not have any coatings that the non-organic fabrics have. This means the ink absorbs into the fibres, reducing the colour strength slightly (by approx. -40%). For super strong colours we recommend a non-organic natural fabric.
Can you perfectly join two separately printed panels?
We always try to provide the utmost precision in printing and manufacturing. However, due to unavoidable stretching or movement of the fabric at the time of sewing, we can not guarantee a perfect alignment of the pattern on the seams of the garment. Generally we are accurate to 2-3mm, which is sufficient for most reasons but can pose minor problems with patterns or geometric designs.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Is it possible to print your own label?
Most of our clothing is made with a label space. You can print your label and add information about your brand. If you want to sew your own labels, we offer customizable labels of different sizes.
Can I print on both sides of the fabric?
We do not offer printing on both sides of the fabric, as a lot of our fabrics are semi-transparent. As the customer, you can consider the effect of printing on both sides one of our fabrics and contact us, and we will get back to you if it's feasible.
Can I order labels in another fabric? Will you cut them like you do with the normal fabric labels?
At the moment no, our labels are all printed on the same satin fabric. We may introduce more in the future, but for now this is the best choice. The labels are all cut the same way. You can order the fabric of your choice and make the labels yourself, but we do not cut different fabric into label format.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
Why are there slight colour differences between my orders?
We work at improving our colour profiles all the time. Though rare it may happen that from one print run to another, and there could be slight colour differences, this is normal and part of the process when we are constantly improving. It is extremely unlikely that there will be a huge difference (like orange instead of red for example). Please bear in mind such colour variations can be intensified from fabric to fabric due to the varying grains and textures of the fabric; natural fabrics tend to have more muted colours than their poly alternatives. This is due to the construction of the materials as well as the print methods that have to be altered slightly for more delicate, natural textiles.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, you may find a slight variance in the sizes.
