Peau de Soie
Peau de Soie is a soft, strong and medium weight fabric. It is woven using a twill weave and the fabric has a dull, textured appearance. It is a luxurious corded fabric with fine crosswise ribs. Peau de Soie is traditionally woven from silk, however recently it has been made using Viscose or synthetic yarns. This fabric is usually produced in plain colours and it is usually double faced, meaning that it can be reversible. The term ‘Peau de Soie’ is French and literally translates as ‘Silk skin.’ It is used frequently in eveningwear, bridal wear, coats, shoes and trimmings. Peau de Soie is similar to Grosgrain fabric and originated in early modern Europe.
