1. What measurements do I need to provide?

First you need to decide the material and quantity for each item. Then follow this step by step guide on what to measure for each piece of robe. If you wish you could also book a tailor to measure for you.

When you have all the measurements, please fill in the form below and your information will be automatically sent through.

2. Fabric Choice – What material should I choose?

Generally speaking cotton fabric is softer to touch and breathable but can be more prone to crease and wrinkle. Polycotton is easy to care but has a little synthetic feel to it. Also you may prefer cotton if you have sensitive skin, or live in a hot and humid climate.

The fabrics I have in stock are mainly cotton poplin and polycotton. Cotton poplin is a strong, crisp fabric with a silky, lustrous surface. Polycotton has 65% polyester and 35% cotton. They are suitable for making Chögu, Tsen, Donka, Shamtab, undershirt, underskirt and underdress.

For Tsen, you can also choose fleece as winter material.

For Shamtab, you can also choose cotton canvas as winter material.

For Dingwa, I use cotton canvas and polycotton drill. They are thicker material than cotton poplin and polycotton, and are more suitable for making dingwa.

3. Robe Care

We always keep robes on higher place not on the floor. Don’t point feet at them and never throw our robes.

They do not have to be washed in washing machine separately. Please wash your robes according to the instructions. In my opinion, skipping the dryer is very helpful in keeping your robes in good shape and last longer. When robes come out of the washing machine, gently shake or stretch them and hang the them to dry. But do make sure to dry your laundry immediately and don’t leave wet clothes in the machine since it will wrinkle and may eventually cause mold and mildew. If needed, steaming over ironing is recommended as it’s gentler to the fabric fibers.

If you get a stain on your robes, spot treat it immediately. Natural materials such as cotton generally absorb a lot which means that the longer you wait, the harder it gets to eliminate the stain.

4. Do you have fabric in matching colour?

I am afraid I cannot guarantee matching colour unless you go for the same material. For example, if you prefer polycotton Chögu and undershirt, I normally would use the same roll/batch of fabric and hence the same colour. Whereas when you choose fleece for your Tsen, the colour shade might not match exactly that of polycotton Tsen because they are of different materials.
