Burgundy has found its way into many high school colors and university or college colors, symbols and logos. For references to schools using section. Or, drop us an email for references in your area.
Tassel and Year-Date
The tassel includes a metallic 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.
These burgundy graduation gowns are called Keepers. These caps and gowns are made from polyester fabric. Ideal for a 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 matte color, more durable gown, or a professional robe, please return to our front page and take a look at our Academic Regalia section.
Lightweight fabric, shrink resistant, mildew resistant, and quick drying. Also strong, resistant to stretching, most chemicals, and abrasion. Reliably resilient and crisp when wet or dry. Retains heat-set pleats and creases. Washable in ordinary washers and dryers, though we do not recommend you do so many times as they are not intended for long-term use.
