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 18 customer reviews
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.
It is pretty much how I imagined it would be. Good service, great product.
This was the first time I’ve ordered my own design fabric from anywhere. I was astonished by how easy it was to use the design facility, the quality of the product, but most of all by the speed in which it came.

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?
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.
For most of our fabrics, there is no limit on the length of the fabric that you can order. We have a preview design window set up to 10m max to visualise the print, but that's not a print limit. If you'd like to order more, increase the quantity (x2 for 20m or x4 for 40m for example) and then you can order as much as you'd like, with a built-in automatic volume discount too. The maximum print width of each fabric can be found on the individual fabric pages or in our design interface.
Do I need to incorporate white space within my design if I want a border or some cutting space?
Yes, that might help you! Always incorporate any extra space or borders into your purchased fabric size. We trim squarely around fabric samples and fabric prints, leaving approximately 5mm white space. Cutting neatly on the line has an additional fee.
Do you print on fabric a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not; we like to test meticulously so that we know what gets best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail, jpeg is fine.
Why is there a barcode inside my clothing?
Due to our internal processes here at Contrado, there will be a barcode printed on your garment. This is inside the clothing and will not affect your design. It is usually found towards the bottom.
What is the situation with material shrinkage?
Just like many fabric printing processes, there is the potential for shrinkage. Depending on the fabric, please expect and allow between 2-8% shrinkage which you need to plan for in your dimensions. This percentage can vary. As everything we produce is handmade to order, there may be a slight variance in the measurements.
Can I print on both sides of the fabric?
We do not offer printing on both sides of the fabric, as many 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 as you do with the normal fabric labels?
At the moment 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. You can order the fabric of your choice and make the labels yourself, but we do not cut different fabric into labels.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are printed using water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat 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 fulfilment.
