Just a thought..
My daughter had a black silk kimino when she was in martial arts...
I had a dragon applied to it by a shop. They did silk screening, logos, ets.
They had a dragon they applied, that didn't melt the silk, and was awesome. It was like the letters on a jersey, that type of material. It washed beautifully, and is still in use.
