Contessa is an extremely popular heavy Polyester Matt Duchess Satin, measuring 148 cm (58") wide, that weighs 288g/sqm and is available in a great range of colours.
For a beautiful, luxurious look that holds its drape this fabric has maintained its place as a best seller in our range for many years. With a smooth satin finish of an attractive sheen, the colours are favoured for bridesmaids, prom dresses and also mother-of-the bride. For a traditional wedding dress we offer this fabric in ivory and white.
This fabric is woven and dyed in Japan and is made from twisted yarns, which result in a highly dense weave and a “non snag” performance. Contessa has a firm handle and a very rich appearance. It is perfect for corsets, waistcoats and full gowns as it maintains its shape during wear.
We offer it in both a range of Lighter shades (seen on this page) and Darker shades. We recommend ordering a sample from the product page to appreciate the handle and the colour of the fabric. The first two samples are free. If you would like to appreciate the drape we have no minimums so you could purchase just 50cm (20").
Contessa is suitable for either 30 degree washing or dry cleaning.
