This dressmaking fabric is a lightweight, extremely fine man-made netting with a hexagon weave, similar to honeycomb. Tulle can be made from various fibres, such as nylon, rayon or silk. Originating in the early 1700s in the City of Tulle in Southern France, tulle became commonly used to accentuate a fuller skirt and provide a lacy, floaty look. Often used for bridal wear, undershirts and costumes, tulle is an increasingly popular fabric for pretty occasion wear too, widely available in a variety of colours.
