This highly slubbed dupion is a hand woven silk fabric with a lot of body and a crisp finish. It is perfect for structured garments that need to hold their shape. It is also suitable for most soft furnishings. This fabric has numerous slubs or ‘bumps’ created when the silk yarn is spun.

Silk is one of the world’s most enduring symbols of beauty, fulfilling a human love of luxury that no other fabric seems to satisfy so completely and in so many forms. Traditionally silk was reserved for royalty, but is now available to all lovers of fine quality fabrics. As with all natural products, variations in silk are an intrinsic characteristic, and some weave and dye lot variations may occur.
Silk will give the most glamorous finish for most soft furnishing applications – curtains, swags and tails, blinds,  cushions, lampshades, bedheads and bed spreads and wall paneling.  However, silk must be protected from direct sun light, as it is a natural fibre and can suffer sun damage. Sheer silks are not recommended for use as window coverings as they are very sun sensitive, unless used as a very glamorous overlay out of the sun.
Silk makes stunning drapes, but if used in north and west facing windows, extra care needs to be taken to protect it from the sun. Tricks of the trade that extend the life of your curtains include putting in extra fullness to cut off any sun damage if it happens and swapping the curtains from left to right so any sun damage is out of sight.
As silk has a high water content it may move with changes in humidity.  If possible, allow your curtains to hang for a few months before final hemming in case they move up or down slightly.  If you allow ‘puddling’ on the floor, any movement will be too minor to notice and they can be hemmed immediately.
