Silk Curtain Fabric

Our silk fabrics have a lusciously lavish feel to them and would add opulence to any room. Silk has a natural regal awe to it that it emulates into a room. Our silk satins are only suitable for curtains and roman blinds. If it was used for upholstery it would wear thin very quickly and would most likely snag on the furniture.

Silk's beautiful appearance and drape makes it suitable for wall coverings, curtains, blinds, rugs, bedding and wall hangings, but only the silk of moth caterpillars is suitable.  Some lighter silks are regularly used for quality clothing. Silk is a natural protein fibre that can be woven into textiles. It is obtained from the cocoon of the silkworm larva, in the process known as sericulture, which kills the larvae. The shimmering appearance for which it is recognized is from the fibres triangular prism-like structure, which allows silk cloth to refract incoming light at different angles.

Wild Silk

A variety of wild silks, produced by caterpillars other than the mulberry silkworm (latin name Bombyx mori) and several other insects have been known and used in China, South Asia, and Europe since ancient times. But is a very small proportion compared to the cultivated silk.
