Welcome to my shop!
I have been sifting and sorting some fabrics. There are Tweeds, Silks, Fine wools, Velvets, Brocades and a stunning bale of antique wedding silk! It will take me a while to list everything so please do look in my shop once in a while.
An unused bale of 15 meters 48 cm/ 50 foot 9 inches of beautiful antique Edwardian wedding silk. The silk has a ribbed weave with alternating stripes of opaque shiny silk and dull translucant silk. The stripes have a polka dot pattern to the weave. The bale came to me wonderfully stored, having been loosely wound with the original tissue paper, hence the excellent condition of the fabric.
The fabric is in excellent condition, The silk is in good strong condition and suitiable for use. There are some small marks at the selvedge.
The price of the bale works out at less than £30 a meter.
The fabric is 58 cm x 15.48 meters/ 22.75 inches x 50.7 ft and has been loosely wound with fresh sheets of acid free tissue paper.
