Silk Taffeta

We have a huge new shipment of utterly gorgeous silk taffeta! This crisp, fine fabric has a glorious luster, deeply saturated colors, and a firm, smooth hand.

Many of these taffetas are made with a shot weave, in which the warp and weft are two different colors, giving an iridescent effect.

Taffeta is a crisp fabric with body, making it suited to garments that need to hold their shape and create volume. No droopy ruffles or sad, floppy skirts here! Taffeta will make bows that stand on their own and dresses that fit and flare, while feeling almost weightless.

There are a lot more colors in our store! Stop by and feel this dreamy fabric for yourself!
