Wedding dress fabrics

The fabric is a key element in the choice of a wedding dress. A high quality fabric can make even the simplest bridal dress fabulous.

Whether your bridal gown is modern or traditional, make it wonderful with our top quality 100% silk bridal fabrics, all Made in Italy.

Every fabric has its own unique properties, so be sure to choose the most appropriate for your wedding dress: silk chiffon, drap (also called silk cady), satin and georgette are perfect for wedding dresses with soft, simple, flowing lines; duchesse, taffettà, faille and shantung with their lightweight stiffness, are ideal for more structured or sculpted models; finally, organza is a lightweight and delicate fabric that can be used to make romantic and elegant bridal gowns.


Silk Chiffon

Silk chiffon is a very light fabric produced with the thinnest silk yarns on the market, soft to the touch but resistant. Very fine, transparent, fluffy, silk chiffon is perfect for creating wedding garments with a unique design; it gives a “floating” effect and ensures a soft line.
It can be used in place of tulle for the top layer of the dress or to create a romantic skirt all in chiffon. For those who get married in the hot season this fabric is definitely one of the most suitable: ideal for the realization of wedding dresses empire or retro style and for multi-layer skirts.

Silk Cady

Silk drap (also called silk cady) is an elegant and classic fabric, made on lustrous silk warp yarns with a weave that is double face in weft. The weft is matte silk crepe that covers almost all of the shine of the warp.
With a fluid drap and semi-crepe texture, this fabric is well suited for making wedding dresses with an elegant and discreet look, both classic and modern.

Silk Crepe Back Satin

Silk crepe back satin is a fine, shiny and smooth fabric that can be a good choice for any style of wedding dress. It can be used alone to create very tightly fitting slip dresses, that slide over the body exalting the shapes or in combination with more structured fabrics, able to give support, for the creation of dresses with wider lines.

Silk Georgette

Silk Georgette is a sheer, floaty and light fabric, similar to chiffon, but a little heavier and more opaque, with a crepe surface. It is often used for wedding dress overlays and train embellishments, which can soften the silhouette of the dress. Thanks to its transparency, it can be used to give the dress a romantic and sensual touch.

Silk Duchesse

Silk Duchesse is a smooth fabric, stiff to the touch and rather firm, very comfortable to wear. What makes it so unique is its compact semi-lustrous satin shimmer. Versatile and glamorous, silk duchesse is perfect for the bride who dreams of an elegant and well-structured wedding dress, that outlines the female figure.

Silk Taffettà

Silk Taffettà is a very tightly woven, stiff, crisp and highly structured fabric, making it an ideal bridal fabric choice for brides who want structured ball gown style wedding dresses. Taffeta has a gorgeous sheen and makes a distinctive rustling sound as it rubs against itself. Grace Kelly’s unforgettable wedding dress had a taffeta gown, made of 100 yards of silk and a ivory faille skirt.

Silk Faille

Silk Faille is a quality of taffetà, a structured fabric, rather rigid and sustained, recognizable by reliefs and regular ribs in the sense of the texture. Made of pure silk, faille is a very precious and refined fabric. In wedding dresses it is often used in combination with tulle to create large skirts with a vaporous effect.

Silk Shantung Satin

Silk Shantung Satin is a shimmery and elegant silk fabric with a unique rough and irregular surface. It is ideal for sophisticated draped style wedding gowns. Shantung satin is flattering on most every body type, provides a very elegant and rich effect and looks gorgeous in photos.


Silk Organza

Silk Organza is a lightweight, thin, transparent and versatile fabric that looks similar to chiffon but is stiffer. It is often used in haute couture dresses, works well with many other fabrics and it’s especially great for overlay embellishments, such as trains, full skirts, and wedding veils, offering brides a light, ethereal and romantic effect.
