We offer a wide range of dupioni and shantung fabrics in different weights, widths and textures. Fabrics are often weaved from yarns of two different colors leading into beautiful iridescent effects. Douppioni is an elegant fabric in plain weave woven from yarns of douppioni silk. Filling yarns form characteristic irregular crosswise ribs. Fabric is light to medium weight with a rough uneven texture and a dull luster. It is usually dyed brillinat colors. These fabrics hold their shape and resist to wrinkles. Shantung is similar to douppioni but lighter and a bit more flowing then douppioni. It still has the characteristic crosswise ribs but the surface is much smoother then on douppioni. Please pay attention to the detail characteristics of each fabric.

Silk dupioni (often mistakenly called as “raw silk”) is a popular choice for formalwear and bridal fashions. It has a slight sheen, a dazzling color palette, holds its shape well, and has an elegant, luxurious look. A comfortable, breathable fabric, it’s a godsend for formal dances or summer weddings. Dupioni also makes beautiful everyday wear – dresses, skirts, trousers, and jackets. It looks great in accessories like clutches, ties and kerchiefs, bows, and silk flowers. And it can bring color to an interior too – in pillowcases and lux window treatments.

Silk dupioni is immediately recognizable for its distinctive texture. Fine warp threads are interwoven with weft threads of uneven thickness, resulting in an irregular, crosswise, slubbed stripe. This surface texture is more subtle in our fine dupioni, which is quite similar in appearance to the even smoother shantung silk or the more papery taffeta. If you have a rustic look in mind, try our classic dupioni.
Dupioni holds its shape and works well in structured garments. For simpler items such as a summer skirt or dress, try using it without a lining. Otherwise, dupioni pairs well with silk linings such as habotai or silk serge.
