Our Amaranth Purple Dupioni Silk Fabric is a must have amongst fashion designers and interior decorators. It is often used in evening wear and bridal/wedding, but can also be used for suits and high end sportswear and home decor. Woven completely by hand, this medium-weight fabric has a characteristic slubby and shimmery texture that can be either tone-on-tone or iridescent depending on the threads used in the weaving process. It is very similar to the machine-woven silk shantung, and often interchangeable, but has distinctive hand-woven appearance. Dupioni is a very forgiving fabric that is very easy to sew.
