Silk taffeta is a luxury classic. Sturdy, tightly woven, with an elegant sheen, it falls in great, architectural folds and has a characteristic scroop (the rustling sound peculiar to taffeta). Perfect for wedding gowns and bridal fashions, ball gowns, and cocktail dresses, it also works wonders for accessories (clutches,wraps, flowers, bows) and home decor.

Taffeta is quite stiff, behaving much like tissue paper. It holds its shape and works wonderfully in full, gathered skirts and structured garments. Taffeta combines well with lace and chiffon; try a silk lining such as habotai or silk serge. For a similar look with a bit less stiffness, you might try a fine silk dupioni.
