Super luxurious crisp, lightweight fabric with a fine, smooth surface. Constructed as a plain weave, this vibrant pink 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. Because of this, it has a beautiful almost two-tone quality to it, so it appears a softer, dusty pink, with flashes of a deeper more vivid pink in certain lights. The fabric is completely woven by hand and is Fair Trade certified and like all of our fabrics, we chose the colour to be perfectly timeless.

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:
