Raw Silk: 100% silk. A flat weave, you may be familiar with this fabric because it is used in men’s suits and sport coats.  Natural and also elegant in appearance, this medium weight fabric is comfortable to wear and doesn’t wrinkle. You may want to order with lining, raw silk has flecks that may come off on darker clothing worn underneath. Dry clean only. 


Vestment Fabrics

Silk Dupioni: 100% Silk. Beautiful with a slight sheen, but not shiny. This fabric is also called Thai silk. Somewhat like silk shantung, it has slight lines showing in the weave and slub yarns create random bumps. It is best to store in a closet, do not hang for any length of time in a place where sunlight falls directly on the garment. Prolonged exposure to direct light can fade the color.
