Custom Printed Hijabs Handmade to Order
Your beautiful custom headscarf is the perfect way to show off your individual style without compromising your beliefs, especially when printed with unique designs, illustrations or artwork. With a choice of 5 fabrics, you can get the right look, texture and support that you're looking for. We finish the custom hijab flawlessly, stitching either a baby hem or 3-thread overlock. Depending on how you style your headscarf, there's a range of sizes to choose from, so select the dimensions that will give you the coverage you're after. Please note: As all of our headscarves 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.
Custom Headscarf Handmade in London, UK
Everything we do is individually made to order in our London, UK facilities. Our 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.
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.

Reviews for Headscarf
based on 20 customer reviews
Everything was excellent, beautiful fabric and great print quality. Created as a 70th birthday gift for a dear friend.
Excellent service,quick and very helpful, the quality was excellent.
The scarf was printed beautifully, finished well and was of a much higher quality than I anticipated. Delivery was also super fast and I would definitely use Contrado again.
Lovely quality really happy with my order
Both scarves I've purchased have been beautiful quality, something I can be proud to have as part of my brand. The production and shipping time to the US is also amazingly quick! The only thing I wish for now is a drop ship option, and an option to have the item in more beautiful packaging (willing to pay more for this!) so that the items can go straight to my clients. Perhaps you could add several "add-on" options of different styles of gift wrapping/boxing?
I was blown away by the quality of the products, the colours, the faithfulness of the design, and the speed - would recommend to anyone!
Very good quality
I enjoyed designing silk scarves for family using your website design tool, and recipients have been delighted with the results, especially as I have used images of my late father’s watercolours (he died in June so this was the first Christmas without him). Impressive turnaround time just before Christmas! It would be even better if it were possible to zoom in on the design to check/tweak.
Delighted with the quality of the muslin Scarf. Print quality is perfect, delivery prompt. My design looks exactly as I envisioned it on this lovely product. thank you.
Very good finish, faithful colours
I ordered one of my own designs on the long scarf in the Mulmul Muslin, with a baby hem. I was so happy with quality of the fabric, quality of the print and sewn edges. Also the speed of which I received my order was brilliant. It would also be good to have the option of a slightly longer and wider version of this shape scarf available.
I bought a scarf, I wanted some text on it and I found the design part of the website extremely frustrating which meant that the text was much larger than I hoped. The end result is still beautiful quality but not exactly what I wanted.

Frequently asked questions:
What are the hemming options?
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 our 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.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, you may find a slight variance in the sizes.
