Originating from the city of Tulle in Southern France, in the early 1700's, tulle became commonly used to accentuate a fuller skirt and provide a floaty look as it is much more lightweight than layers of fabric. Tulles are commonly used for wedding veils, gowns, under or over layers for skirts and stiffer tulles or net for ballet tutus or costumes.

We offer a number of different tulles and nets, which offer a choice of weights and stiffness depending on the end use and look you desire. Some of our nets and tulles have embellishments such as diamantes and glitter whilst others are simple yet stunning. Our colored articles, especially Carnival or Climax are also suitable for a variety of dance, ballet and theatrical purposes.
Quality tulle used to make dresses and veils
Tulle is the premier choice for veiling fabric and is also used under and over skirts to add more volume. Transparent and vaporous, it is made up of a continuous network of knitted yarn that is either nylon, polyester, silk or cotton.
At Bridal Fabrics, we offer tulles of all kinds of the best quality. We offer plain tulles that can be left plain but can also have trim or appliques added to them. This is a popular option for veiling. We also offer tulle that is already embellished with either glitter, beads or flocking. We have a choice of colors and also stock illusion tulle to make dresses where the fabric creates the illusion of bare skin. We also have tulle that has a deep lace border on one edge to create very striking veils or dress overlays. We call these lace trimmed tulles.
Our collection of tulles is wide and varied
In addition to offering tulle with or without embellishment we offer tulle in different widths. If you are making a cathedral length veil or layers for a circle skirt we have a range of veiling tulles that are 300cms (118") wide. We also offer different weights of tulle and net. The heavier the tulle the more structure it gives. For example Moderation is a net that is used to make underskirts or petticoats because it is stiff enough to add a lot of volume and allow the skirt to sit proud and stand out like a Disney princess dress. If you need any help or advise on which tulle or net to choose to get the look you want please get in touch with our team of experts. We are always happy to help. You can also order tulle fabric samples on each product page - the first two are free. We also offer tulle made from different components for example silk tulle and also Polyamide tulle.
