Gouda, Inc. designs and manufactures custom silk scarves.
Custom silk scarves have been a mainstay of our custom offerings at Gouda since we started making custom gifts and accessories in 1992.
Our custom scarf designs begin with a concept for a scarf in either a square or oblong format.
We make custom scarves in a number of sizes. Typically, we want to design the scarf around the optimum yield of the silk fabric so that it will be the most cost effective and not waste the silk itself. We can discuss size options with you at the beginning of the process to help make some of these decisions at the outset.
We print our custom silk scarves on silk twill, satin, chiffon, and crépe. Each of these fabric weights and weaves have different properties and looks when printed. We also offer twill in a few different weights which have a more or less formal quality.
Traditional printing is the best technique for printing silk scarves when the imagery is appropriate. Traditionally printed silk is spot color printing with deep color saturation. Even on the heaviest silks, you will see rich color penetration through to the back of the scarf with traditional printing.
The finest scarves in the world are traditionally printed by hand, one color at a time.
If you plan to provide the artwork for your scarf the best options are Illustrator or Photoshop.
We also provide scarf design services if you need assistance with your custom scarf project. You will work directly with our design team to finalize your scarf.
We craft our scarves with hand-rolled or machine rolled hems depending on your preference. A hand-rolled hem is a rolled and hand sewn stitch by stitch – which is the most traditional and formal scarf finish. A machine hem is less expensive than a hand rolled hem, but a scarf collector will expect to see a hand-rolled edge as a mark of quality.
We provide a custom woven logo label and a custom printed hang tag made to order for your scarves. We can also provide custom retail packaging for your scarves made to order.
