Custom silk flags direct from the experts
Guide prices and information can be found in the custom flag brochure.
Hand-dyed silk produces an unrivalled vibrancy of colour and suppleness of movement when flying, so is a perfect choice for banners to mark a special occasion or flags for performance.
Bright and deep colours are ensured due to multiple applications of dye which allows good penetration of the design onto the reverse side.
For larger items we recommend a durable silk with a slight texture which is sourced from Murshidabad, India. Small flags work well in silk habotai, which is lighter in weight.
Flag projects usually fit one of these models:
- Commission the studio directly, commonly used for commercial clients and high profile events
- Community co-creation, often used for place making projects
1. Commission us
For speed, quality and a simple design process, clients choose to work directly with our experienced silk painters and flag makers.
Working in our fully equipped studio, all aspects of production are closely monitored, from initial design to finished product.
Kinetika can cater for different shapes and sizes of flags or banners, including more structural shapes that require specialist rodding, like leaf flags or wave banners.
We welcome enquiries for commissions of any size, and encourage discussions early in a project timeline.
Contact us to discuss your flag requirements.
2. Community flag making workshops
For high quality place making projects to bring local history alive, Kinetika is often commissioned to make flags with local artists and community groups.
Amongst the skills development and learning about batik, participants can be asked to bring stories to share to weave into the designs. The flags then serve as a delightful illustration of the captured stories, and a meaningful visual asset for years to come.
Our lead artists curate the final designs to ensure consistency and quality, but the content is always driven by the individual communities and the ideas they bring.
