Package Contents

Our burgundy graduation gowns package, also used for maroon caps and gowns, comes with a gown, cap, tassle with metallic year, and gold or white collar for women. Shipped enclosed in a clear plastic package with a size label listing height and sizing for weight.


Typical Uses

These burgundy graduation gowns are called Keepers. These caps and gowns are made from polyester fabric. Ideal for single use or as a souvenir during a school commencement ceremony. Usually used by everything from elementary schools, to middle schools, all the way through to community colleges and four year colleges and universities. If you are looking for more of a matte color, more durable gown, or a professional robe, please return to our front page and take a look at our Academic Regalia section.


Fabric Description

Lightweight frabric, shrink resistant, mildew resistant, and quick drying. Also strong, resistant to stretching, most chemicals, and abrasion. Reliably reslient and crisp when wet or dry. Retains heat-set pleats and creases. Washable in ordinary washers and dryers, though we do not reccommend you do so many times as they are not intended for long-term use. These gowns can fade from long sun exposure.


Tassel and Year-Date

The tassel includes a mettalic year, called a tassel drop. We carry the current year, most prior years going back about ten years, and sometimes the next future year. We can't make a special tassel-drop, and all tassel drops are pulled from our stock and not cast on-site.
