Fair Trade Two-Tone Teal Silk Taffeta

Fair Trade Two-Tone Teal Silk Taffeta


Regular price £35.10

Price is per metre. Multiple quantities will be cut in a continuous length.

Super luxurious crisp, lightweight fabric with a fine, smooth surface. Constructed as a plain weave, this unusual green-blue taffeta has a wonderful hold and body to it, and still has a stunning drape. Described as a "thick" taffeta, it is closely woven and opaque but with a light hand feel.

It is constructed with two different coloured threads on the warp and weft (the threads that run along and across the fabric), reminiscent of a cross-weave; With a blue thread running along the warp, and a green thread across the weft, the fabric has a two-tone appearance, altering the hue to a light or dark teal in different lights. The fabric is completely woven by hand (taking a month to weave just a few metres) and Fair Trade certified. Like all of our fabrics, we chose the colour to be perfectly timeless, and applicable across fashion and interiors.

To care for your product:

We recommend eco-friendly dry cleaning to protect the natural lignin gum that gives organza its stiffness. Otherwise, hand wash rather than using a delicate machine wash cycle, but please note that washing does change the texture making it crinkly until ironed. If in doubt, you can always hang up any item made with this textile in your bathroom after a shower for the steam to help release any odours and creasing. It is also beneficial to avoid any acidic substances such as citrus and some deodorants that can eat away and discolour the fibre.

Ideal For:

Bags & Accessories, Blinds, Blouses, Couture & Eveningwear, Curtains & Pelmets, Embroidery, Fashion, Gowns, Hand Sewing, Jackets & Coats, Lining & Pocketing, Machine Sewing, Millinery, Skirts & Dresses, Tableware, Trousers & Shorts, Underwear & Lingerie, Wedding
