Silk Fabric

Silk, admired for its lustrous face and smooth hand, is a strong and natural fabric made from the cocoons of silkworms. Historically tied to luxury, silk can exude both a dignified elegance and a sultry appeal, depending on the application. Seen often as billowing gowns, long skirts, gorgeous blouses, or even elegant robes, silk comfortably fills the role of elevating any formal, evening, or loungewear sewing project to a level of high class. If you are looking for a more affordable option with a similar look and feel to silk, we suggest exploring our Rayon and Polyester fabrics.
