Dupion Silk Fabric
Silk Dupion Fabric by James Hare is soft and luxurious; a plain weave handwoven pure silk fabric. Gorgeous and incredibly diverse, this fabric is used to create beautiful items for your wardrobe and home. Silk Dupion is the best known silk in the world, used by top designers around the world. It is extensively used to make Wedding Dresses and Bridesmaid Dresses.
Often referred to as Raw or Wild Silk and has a natural and artisan look. Also known as Dupioni or Douppioni. The fabric can be woven into plaid and stripped patterns, floral or other intrinsic intricate designs and may be embroidered in any manner desired.
This beautiful fabric is a pure joy to sew with. As a result, I love using it to create stunning neckties, cummerbunds, waistcoats, pocket squares, handbags and so much more. You can cut and shape detailed patterns with ease due to its structure. You can make corsets and corset dresses with ease too. When used for making drapery, be sure to use underlining to protect your curtains from sunlight.
Natural slubs which run across the fabric create textural interest. A 'silk slub' is a thickened portion of yarn; occurring naturally. The slubs create random surface interest in textiles; created deliberately in some fabrics to add texture.
Are you looking for a versatile fabric which will compliment most styles? Then this is the first choice for you! This premium quality pure silk fabric will add an air of timeless elegance to your wardrobe or your home; therefore it will stand the test of time.
