This is a versatile and utterly wearable piece, which can be worn for leisure or fashion. Slip your personalised kimonos over a pair of comfy pyjamas or a Customised Knickers and Custom Bandeau for the perfect chill out look. This works for both fabric options, but perhaps opt for the Silk Sensation if you want a more seductive and evocative ensemble. You can also style your designer kimonos with your everyday wardrobe, to create an on-trend look, perfect as an alternative for a jacket or cardigan.

Frequently asked questions:
Can I wear this as a fashion item?
Yes you can - the best thing about your custom kimono is that it can also be worn as a stylish kimono jacket. Kimono robes are such a fashion forward way to add some depth to your outfit. A floral kimono will make a statement piece, which is also hugely on-trend. Select the Silk Sensation option for a more fashionable look and upload your design, then layer it over your everyday clothes to add some real dimension and interest.
What is a "kimono cut?"
This designer dressing gown has been designed in the classic Japanese kimono T shape. The bespoke kimono jacket is shorter than standard dressing gowns, coming down roughly to mid-thigh. This makes it ideal for wearing over your favourite lingerie or pjs or layered over an outfit. The classic kimono cut also features wide, 3/4 length sleeves and a distinctive square kimono collar. It is a beautiful cut, which suits most body shapes.
Would this make a good custom gift?
Because you are able to customise the whole of the gown, we think this would make a very special and thoughtful gift. In particular, personalised bridal kimono robes are always a wonderful present, as you can create a design using photos of the couple and make a photo montage, complete with "Bride" or the bride's name printed on the back or front. A gorgeous silk kimono robe makes a very special and romantic custom gift.

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 stopping any interpolation.
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.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
If each individual colour is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each colour with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colours within the image is more important choose RGB, this will reduce all colours equally to fit within our range.
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric, and sewn into finished products, which gives a better finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns, but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
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.
