Originating from China, our Silk Shantung 54" Fabric has a crisp feel and lustrous finish. This admirably soft fabric is Dupioni type of silk that comes from Shantung province in China. Although not as stiff as silk Dupioni or Silk Taffeta, its heavy weight makes it versatile for many high-end fashion uses, such as bridal, evening dresses, jackets, blazers, pants, skirts, blouses, and home decorating uses, such as draperies and curtains. Meticulously woven from wild silk, the Silk Shantung 54" Fabric comes with slubs and distinctive subtle sheen. Our Silk Shantung 54" Fabric is available in a wide range of colors.
