Other Questions

What is the difference between material choices? What color is silk versus white silk?
Silk (Textured and Off White) is created by weaving silk threads of two different colors into a plain weave pattern that seems to change colors as the silk is moved around in different lights. This process creates distinct horizontal lines in the material, adding texture and uniqueness to the piece. It tends to resist wrinkles, takes creases well, gives the apparel a crisp and formal appearance, and has a light sheen. It is slightly off white in color, almost like a glass of champagne.

White Silk is created the same as the textured version, but the yarns are thinner, and the horizontal lines are much less predominant. It therefore has a much smoother texture, and the light sheen is more noticeable. It is white in color.

Shantung is a fabric that is often made with silk fibers and man made fibers, using the same weaving method as the silk. It has both texture and visual attraction, and is naturally stain resistant. It looks and feels very similar to the silk, but is a brilliant white color.

White Brocade is a shantung with a gorgeous pattern woven into the material. It is a brilliant white with added interest from the patterning image.
