Sister Mintaka presents the Banaras Dupion Red Silk from Liberty London.
Start planning your next great crafting project with this radiant dupion silk fabric – handcrafted by skilled weavers in South India.
This 24-momme dupion silk is a plain weave with a tightly-woven, slightly uneven finish. It was created in the state of Bangalore, in a tradition dating back thousands of years. Dupion silk is distinguished by its highly lustrous surface and vivid colouration, with a thickness and iridescence that is similar to shot silk taffeta or Chinese shantung. Use it to create immaculately tailored jackets, skirts and dresses that shine with vibrancy.
This fabric is 100% Silk.
For care instructions it is recommended that this fabric is dry cleaned only.
Our fabrics are sold by the half meter. If you wish to order 1.5 meters please add the quantity 3 to your basket.
Please note that because fabric is cut to order, it may not be returned or exchanged.
We do our best to get accurate images of all of our fabrics, but due to varying monitor screens, colours may differ slightly to the original fabric.
