Tango - Pure Silk Faille
AU $33.00 per ¼ metre (AU $132 a metre)
Silk 100%, width 142cm. 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 40s and 50’s 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. Suits tailored, semi-fitted or drapey shirts, dresses, skirts and jumpsuits - see our blog post "Queen of the Silks". Dry clean only.
