Teeming with texture, Shantung has a gratifyingly nubby hand paired with a visual grain all its own. Crisp yet pliable, this material is easier to work with than Dupioni as it is of a lighter weight, yet an opaque fabric. Opulent and plainly woven, this material features varied striations throughout that make it an ideal choice for grandiose ball gowns, suits and other heirloom garments.

Crisp fine shantung-almost like a taffeta
February 7, 2015
I ordered this for a costume based on the courtesans from Dangerous Beauty. It will definitely deliver for me. The fabric is mid weight with very fine slubs, densely woven and much more saturated in color than the swatch. Similar to taffeta but more solid feeling. I love it!
