Tempting and Tantalising: Silk Double Crepe Fabric
As a designer and/or dressmaker, you're probably always on the lookout for a versatile fabric to add to your collection. It makes perfect sense to have access to a fabric that is suitable for all sorts of garments, from wedding gowns to bridesmaids dresses and mother-of-the-bride outfits. We are delighted to introduce Tantalise, a fabric that is ideal for all these uses and indeed for creating any kind of occasional wear.
Tantalise is a silk double crepe, which means that it has a delightfully soft and tactile feeling that is described as 'pure luxury; when worn directly next to the skin. The aesthetic of this glorious fabric is just as impressive: its sand washed matt finish has no sheen and drapes beautifully, making it ideal for long, flowing garments that have an ethereal, fairytale quality.
Infinitely extending the versatility of Tantalise Silk Double Crepe is the extensive palette of colour options available, which number no less than 30 different shades. Classic bridal colours such as White, Ivory, Cream and Blush feature highly in the popularity stakes but there are many more less conventional tones to suit fashion-forward designers: these colours include Fuchsia, Royal Blue, Maroon, Turquoise, Purple, Terracotta and Black.
Tantalise Silk Double Crepe with Sand Washed Finish measures 114cm in width and is sold by the metre. We also offer this style in a broader width (135cm) as Temptation, which is exclusively available in White, Ivory and Cream. Check out these fabrics on their product pages and also watch the video on our very own YouTube channel.
