Silk

Silk fabric is the most glamorous and luxurious of fabrics. We stock a wide variety of silks, including chiffonsatin and organza, as well as printed and embroidered silk for different uses.

This fine material is known as the 'Queen of Fabrics', used by dressmakers the world over to create fabulous dresses, shirts, blouses, pocket squares and scarves. Made entirely of natural fibres, silk originated in ancient China over 5,000 years ago and is produced by several insects (such as silk worms) but in general, only the silk of moth caterpillars is used for textile manufacturing.
