Your personalised dirndl apron is made in your choice between two fabrics.
Panama Flo fabric is a stiff, coarse material with a matte finish that feels the same on the front and the back. It has a small amount of elasticity in it and has a water resistant nature - perfect for wiping clean if you happen to spill anything down it. It is a comfortable fabric that holds it shape well and returns crease-free to its natural state. The white base tone of Panama Flo gives clear detail and strong colours.
Monroe Satin is a fluid feeling textile with a soft, shiny front face and a matte back with a grainy texture. The base white base colour of Monroe Satin offers crisp lines and beautiful detailing. The sheen on the front of this fabric gives a very glossy, sparkling finish.

Step 5 – Add the collage to your design.
Your designs are printed onto your chosen fabric using a deep infusion method. Our technicians use this digital technique to permanently bond the inks deep into the fibres of the fabric, resulting in a long-lasting, high-quality print. Your printed fabric is then cut to size and shape, creating your dirndl apron. Your garment is hemmed and finish with a satin ribbon.
If you're not sure which fabric to go with for your custom made German dirndl aprons, try matching it to the rest of your dirndl or Landhausmode. This could be in the small details such as the buttons or embroidery, or in the larger pieces; for example if you have a satin blouse. If your design has a high level of fine detail you may find the Monroe Satin a great option, or if you are looking for a lighter summery design then try the Panama Flo.
Handy Tips: When using our simple online design tool you will notice a red dotted area around the edges of your dirndl apron; this is the trim area which makes up the hem. It is important to make sure that this area isn't left plain (unless of course your design intentionally leaves the edges white) but also that no important parts of your design occupy that area. As all of our hemming is done by hand and we can't say that the seams will take up exactly all of that space, and while we don't want to leave gaps in your design, we also don't want to cut off an important part of your images.
If you and a group of your friends are all heading out to one of the notorious German festivals, design themed custom German dirndl aprons for each of you. Use your favourite group snap, and add a nickname to each photo dirndl apron along with the date of the festival, and not only will it make up an important part of your outfit, but it will double as a personalised keepsake of the time you spent together.
