Discover the Timeless Elegance of Pure Silk Taffeta Fabric

Step into the world of luxurious textiles with our exquisite collection of pure silk taffeta fabrics, perfect for crafting elegant dresses, tailored jackets, chic light coats, and high fashion pieces. Available in a vibrant palette of over fifty colors, our Italian silk taffeta offers unparalleled versatility and style, ensuring your designs not only stand out but also exude a sense of timeless elegance.

What kind of material is taffeta?

Silk taffeta is a high-end, crisp, and smooth fabric known for its lustrous sheen and great strength.

Our silk taffeta is a crisp, plain-woven fabric, made with yarn-dyed organzino both in warp and weft.
What makes it unique is that the threads are twisted as they are woven, which creates the stiffness and structure of the resulting fabric.

It features a softly lustrous, shiny appearance and a sustained, crisp hand, ideal to create a beautiful, structural silhouette.
One of its characteristics is the typical rustling sound, called “scroop” (combination of scrape and woop), that it makes when the wearer moves.

Taffeta was first produced in the Middle East in the twelfth century, and the word taffeta comes from the Persian word “taftah” meaning “crisp, woven.”

For which garments is taffeta suitable?

Elegant and lightweight, silk taffeta is the ultimate fabric for ball gowns and evening dresses, but it also makes an excellent fabric for elegant daywear and jackets or sophisticated bridal gowns and prom dresses.

You can add body to your taffeta garment by underlining it in organza.

Taffeta is also frequently used for undergarments like corsets, where the stiff fabric is needed to hold in the waistline and create a silhouette.

Taffeta is a staple of fashion thanks to its lustrous appearance and the beautiful shapes the texture creates, that’s why is frequently used by iconic designers like Coco Chanel and Christian Dior.

Choosing the right colour

Our pure silk taffeta is available in an extensive color range, featuring over fifty shades. From deep, rich tones to pastel hues, each fabric is dyed with precision to ensure vibrant, lasting color that enhances the luxurious quality of the silk. This wide variety of choices makes our silk taffeta suitable for any project, matching any mood or theme, from wedding attire to evening wear.

Draping qualities of taffeta.

One of the exceptional characteristics of taffeta is its ability to hold its shape while still providing a beautiful drape. The fabric possesses a slight stiffness that allows it to effortlessly fall and flow, creating graceful folds and pleats. Whether you desire a voluminous ball gown or a sleek, tailored silhouette, taffeta has the versatility to deliver.

The unique draping qualities of taffeta make it a popular choice for creating dramatic and eye-catching designs. The fabric has a natural ability to create structured silhouettes, making it an ideal choice for statement-making dresses. The crispness of taffeta allows it to retain its shape, giving a distinct sculptural quality to the garment.
