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. Most often used for wedding veils and wedding gowns, undershirts and costumes, tulle is widely available in a variety of colours.
