At Studio Fabrics we stock all types of silks (describe below) in a large variety of colours. We also stock silk linen, silk mixed suiting fabrics as well as a large selection of silk prints. Silk is a natural fibre spun from silk worm threads. Traditionally originating from China, silk can now be found all around the world including India and Italy. Silks are weaved into many different fabric types including satin, Dupion (otherwise known as raw silk), dutches, chiffon and georgette. It is also possible to find beaded georgette and Dupion silks. To achieve different dress styles and designs the correct type of silk fabric must be employed. For example, flowing styles best suits silk satins, chiffon and georgette. While a more structured style typically requires Dupion or dutches but satin can also be appropriate.
