Custom Printed Silk Fabric
Digital Silk printing is one of the best ways to print, it's so gorgeous, results speak for themselves. Order a fabric sample or swatch pack before ordering to truly understand how colours are reproduced on our natural silk satin.
The front texture is a smooth, sleek, graceful fabric with a glossy shine to the finish of the lustrous face. In contrast, the back texture is just as smooth and soft and flowing but with a crepe finish to it, which actually changes the texture a lot, but still keeps the overall feel soft and fluid. The way this fabric feels on the body is so effortless that it almost feels weightless, it’s very soft and moves over the skin very easily. When it comes to the drape, the material flows and falls in natural waves and folds.
Being a 100% natural fabric, it has a beautiful, pearl like, silvery base tone, producing rich colours that are slightly less intense and paler than that of a poly. With a shiny finish on the face and a matt on the reverse, the detail of the final print is very fine and produces very crisp lines with smooth block colours. Precision is clear here, intricate work will show up perfectly. Due to the natural sheen of the silk, it reflects light very easily, which can give colours a slightly more gentle reproduction. It also gives them a stunning luminosity, which you can only get with natural fabrics. We print silk on one side, and whilst there is complete show through on the Georgette silk, this Silk Satin has limited show through (20%) and in essence, one side looks unprinted.
This high quality silk has so many uses that it’s tough to choose. We offer the platform for you to apply your designs to silk scarfs, wraps, silk ties, luxury garments, lingerie, dresses, and accessories. Your designs come to life on the highest grade silk with the greatest vibrancy of colour. We have lent our services to film and theatre productions, for scene or dressmaking, especially period work. Interior designers also use our digitally printed silk product for specific requirements in fine detailing and luxury finishes.

I like the result of the printed fabric. Not used to ordering online - so did get the size of fabric a bit wrong. Wish I had ordered a large piece to make a top size 14. I probably will need to order another piece similar, so can work out expensive.....
Am very pleased with how the printing turned out and hope have something unique.
I love the colour match its a great sample. If I printed onto thinner silk would the colour go all the way through. I am looking for a printing method which could be used on a scarf (not 100% reversible) but works as a print when folded and worn.
Frequently asked questions on NEW 100% Silk Satin 65gsm (SHIPS 23rd FEBRUARY):
What is the difference between the Silk Satin and the Silk Sensation?
The Silk Satin, is a 100% natural silk, that we print here in our studios. We have a range of naturals but this is by far the most popular and sought after. The Silk Sensation is almost identical in appearance, but it is a poly-based version. If you're after a more saturated silk print, we suggest increasing the contrast of your design, or choosing the Silk Sensation.
Can I get my silk hemmed?
Yes, you can select hemming under the product options. Make sure to add some hemming allowance to your customised measurements. Please see the print guideline above for more information.
Is this silk suitable for clothes?
There is no question here, the silk is perfect for clothing, both sides are soft and it's so light it's ideal for summer wear. We see a lot of the silk being used to make scarves, so we add a hemming option just to be thorough.
