Fabric 411: Silks

By | Boutique | No Comments

No matter what kind of vision you may have for your wedding dress, we can all agree that fit and fabric quality reign supreme as the most important factors considered when selecting the one. Few fabrics can compete with the ever-popular, ever-elegant silk.

From slinky to structured, there are hundreds of variations of this material dating back to Empress Hsi Ling Shi (3000 BC)! Sounds even more overwhelming than narrowing down the guest list? Here, we showcase just a few of our favorites:

Silk Zibeline – Martina Liana (914)

Well-known for being exceptionally sturdy and very easy to sew, this stunning fabric holds full shape when draped and adds crispness without weight.

Silk Dupioni – Paloma Blanca (4733)


This generally two-color hand-woven silk produces a slight shine/iridescent quality is formed from double cocoons. The fabric is typically “coarse” to the touch.

Silk Shantung Taffeta – Legends by Romona Keveza (L8132: shown with blouse)


Shantung is a type of machine-woven silk fabric historically from the province of Shandong. It is similar to Dupioni, but is slightly thinner and less irregular. The taffeta finish gives this fabric a crisp, smooth appearance.

Silk Georgette – Theia (Nava)

Georgette refers to a thin, matte, semi-transparent fabric with a dry hand and grainy surface due to the high twist per inch of the warp and weft threads.

Silk Mikado – Kelly Faetanini (Aster)


One of the heaviest silks, mikado is an excellent choice for brides who will marry in cooler months. The silk is blended with nylon to create a structured feel as seen in the bodice of this beautiful Kelly Faetanini gown.
