Orissa Silk Fabric Opal 31446/47 by James Hare is soft and luxurious dupion; a plain weave handwoven pure silk fabric with its unique beauty coming from the weave. Gorgeous and incredibly diverse, this fabric is used to create beautiful items for your wardrobe and home. It is the best known and loved silk in the world, used by top designers around the world. Extensively used to make Wedding Dresses, Bridal Gowns, Bridesmaid Dresses, Mother of the Bride Outfits, Special Occasion Evening Wear or formal wear; also in Interior Design such as Drapery, Curtains, Lampshades, Wallcoverings and more.
Available in over 200 colours, it’s often referred to as Raw or Wild Silk and has a natural and artisan look. Also known as Dupioni or Douppioni.
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.
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. Making corsets and corset dresses is easy too. When used for making your drapery, be sure to use a quality underlining to protect your curtains from sunlight.
