A Comprehensive Plain Silks Range: Fashion Fabrics
Bridal Fabrics is famous for carrying one of the most extensive ranges of lace fabric to be found online. But did you know that we also carry many other different types of wedding dress material? Part of this range includes a selection of plain silks, fabrics which are being used with ever-increasing frequency by couture bespoke dressmakers.
Here are details of six bridal silks available in our fabric range: three bestsellers and three that are brand new to our collection.
New Silk Fabrics
A classic example of Mikado fabric with a tactile Organza finish, Court is made using a carefully-selected blend of polyester and silk. With a smooth texture and delightful handle, this stunning fabric is available in white and light or dark ivory.
'Peace' or 'Ahimsa' silk is an ecologically-conscious fabric that can be purchased in any of six beautiful colors. Peace silks are made using filament harvested from silkworm cocoons that have been vacated by the worm after it becomes a moth, ensuring that no harm comes to the tiny creatures.
If you're looking for luxury then check out St Maxime, a silk hammer satin with a lustrous finish and a superbly smooth handle. Currently, this fabric is available exclusively in ivory.
