This is a versatile and utterly wearable piece, which can be worn for leisure or fashion!

This works for both fabric options but perhaps opt for the Silk Sensation if you want a more seductive and evocative ensemble.

I was really pleased with how quickly I received my order and how well the colours transferred into fabrics I chose.
Kimono printed quickly and ordering easy. Garment good quality.
Hello, I love working with you guys I have had scarves made before. The kimonos I ordered are of exceptional quality - just a couple of things - I am working with artists to turn their work into wearable art pieces - leggings and scarves - the contrasting fabrics on the kimono's does not really suit the pieces but I understand why it is needed
Sumptuous, gorgeous,snuggly! Worth every penny.

Frequently asked questions:
Can I wear this as a fashion item?
Yes, you can! The best thing when you design your own 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?"
Your 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.
Do you have a minimum run?
We don't. Contrado's print on demand service has no minimum order requirements, either in quantity or in value. This means you can order just one, or a thousand personalised kimono robes. What's more, if you sign up for a wholesale account, you will also benefit from some great discounts when you design your own custom kimono robe. You can order as many or as few as you like, in different sizes if you want, and get great savings.

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.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, you may find a slight variance in the sizes.
