Beautiful vintage pure silk fabric with a slightly matte finish, like a light shantung rather than silk satin. Very subtle, with a wonderful feel - there's just nothing else like silk. It's 42" wide - this piece is a driftwood brown color - a 2 yard length. There's some fine lines of fading or age discoloration at the outer fold lines from years of storage, but the fabric is strong and supple, without foxing or signs of brittleness. We have more silks from this estate collection in different colors, some - like this one - even have the original paper price tag attached.
