I thought I would share with you these new silk dupion and other silk fabrics which we now have available to order by the metre. The first photograph shows a hanger of silk dupion fabric suitable for curtains or dressmaking. This has a lovely range of colours and is priced at £30 per metre. Silk makes absolutely sumptuous curtains, though we do recommend interlining curtains for best effect – something our experienced seamstresses can undertake for you if you wish.
Next you can see a different range of fabrics in these 3 books. First another silk dupion at £31/metre, then a Merino Wool and Silk mix at £54/metre (suitable for curtains or upholstery) and lastly a range of soft woven silk fabrics which feel almost like linen. These are priced at £44 per metre for plains and stripes and £51.60 for the embroidered leaf fabric. There is even a range of silk wallcoverings (not shown).
Finally, if you like the look of silk but not the price tag, why not consider these excellent faux silks – at only £16.68 per metre they make an excellent substitute. We are always happy to let you take hangers home if you are local to us (subject to a cash deposit) so that you can check colours in your home.
