There's been a lot of innovation in textile weaving and printing technology. This is far from the first time this has been done for a movie - it's a cool thing, but not challenging from a technical or budget POV on a film of this scale.
Indeed. Just as an example (Cary... ), LucasFilm had custom patterned fabric woven for the Jedi robes in the prequel films. Some enterprising fans even joined forces and hired a company to recreate the weave for sale to other fans interested in making costumes; so it's clearly expensive, but not so much that it's beyond the reach of a movie studio, or even a few die-hard fans.
