Italian silk fabrics are considered to be one of the best silk fabrics for a reason. Exclusive quality and exquisite design available in a wide range of textures and finishes make them number one choice for evening wear, with a variety of printed and solid silks for casual attire.
Tissura stocks hundreds of silk materials from Italy such as chiffon, crepe, georgette, organza, satin, taffeta, twill, jacquard, ranging from 20 g/m 2 for sheer silks to 260 g/m 2 for matelasse silk fabrics.
Italian silk fabric has many faces. The sheerest one is chiffon, a soft and delicate cloth often chosen for spring/summer. The heaviest silk is double faced satin, smooth and lustrous on both sides. Crepe, georgette and organza are among other popular silk materials produced in Italy. The best place to celebrate the excellence of Italian silk is the Museum of Silk, opened to public in Como, Italy in 1985.
Premium silk fabrics are manufactured on high-tech equipment. Among the world’s leading Italian suppliers are:
These factories offer exclusive silk cloths in a vast range of solid colors, prints and widths.
Silk screen printing is one of the most popular techniques to apply colors. Such prints are long-lasting and resistant to fading. Italian silk prints are as various as one can imagine. From trendy botanicals to florals, from stripes to checks, from animals to abstract figures, from paisley to polka dots – the sky is the limit.
The spring/summer 2017 fashion collections show that the winner is stripes, both vertical and horizontal. The second place belongs to flowers – from gorgeous blossoms covering the whole fabric to hundreds of tiny flowers scattering all over the cloth. Gingham checks and glen plaids are also among the favourites in 2017.
