Silk faille is one of the stronger fabrics in the silk family. Faille is a flat-ribbed fabric made with heavier yarns in the filling and high count warp in a plain weave. This accounts for silk faille's strength, smoothness, understated lustre, good body and easy drape. In the 30s through to the 50s, silk faille was a designer’s fabric of choice for handsome and chic special occasion wear. Timeless quality, silk faille is a showstopper that can be sewn into a vintage or contemporary garment, day or evening.
