Astor Faux Silk Dupion Shell 31554/98 by James Hare offers an authentic look and feel of a natural Silk Dupion. Outstandingly realistic, offering the practical advantage of being fully washable and more light-fast than pure silk. Creating stunning clothing and opening up a range of new decorative applications, including the use in a bathroom or kitchen. Coordinates beautifully with Tesserae Silk Fabric.
A perfect choice for robust and decorative home furnishings, as well as eye-catching Bridal Gowns, Evening Wear and formal garments.
Suitable for bridal, prom and evening wear, the soft feel of the fabric mimics pure silk and has the same distinctive look. With the textured effect of the slubbing design throughout the fabric, clothing feels lush and expensive against the skin, adding to the elegant experience of your garments.
There are several practical advantages to choosing this fabric over pure Silk Dupion. It is fully washable, which opens up a new range of decorative applications. Creating stunning cushions, or curtains for your bathroom or kitchen, you can rest easy knowing that any splashes or stains can be washed out. You can also use lighter colours than you may previously have done like Peanut, because any grubby marks from usage can be cleaned away.
Being significantly more light-fast than pure silk, means you don't have to worry so much about your stunning curtains fading in the sunlight. Feel free to select bold shades such as Cardinal, to display as cushions on your window seat. Likewise, shop window displays won't have the same dimming effect on the colour over time; meaning you can use eye-catching backdrops for much longer than their authentic counterpart. Choosing this fabric will give you a classic and beautiful, yet practical end result.
