The gauze ground of this exceptional veil fabric is true raw silk, that is, reeled silk which still has all its gum.  This makes a sturdy though almost completely transparent fabric. It has a stiff and crisp hand, due to this silk gum. The filament thread has been reeled from “Dupioni” cocoons – cocoons that are spun so close together that they join in some places.  Thus occasionally there are slubs in the thread: a lovely, interesting accent. This fabric is extra wide at 58 inches (147 cm).
