Dupioni silk fabric is a sturdy, wrinkle-resistant, medium weight fabric with a phenomenal, unique textured surface and a beautiful sheen. This fabric is available in an array of colors. It is often used in eveningwear and bridal/wedding, but can also be used for suits and high end sportswear and home decor. Often mistakenly called "raw silk, what makes Dupioni distinctive is that is brushed from “twin” silkworm cocoons, where two silkworms spin their cocoon together. This results in a textured silk filament with non-uniform texture that give Imperial Dupioni the slubs it is famous for. Dupioni is a very forgiving fabric that is very easy to sew.

Responsive service, beautiful fabric

 Recommended Product

Ordered 5 yards for a client's wedding, but the piece arrived with flaws (off-color threads woven in). Vanessa at customer service had me send photos, understood the urgent time frame, and sent a replacement piece out right away. The new piece is gorgeous.

Pros: Lustrous, nearly weightless, textured, crisp body. Light Honey is a gentle, happy, lovely color. Good customer service.

Cons: First piece had flaws, but replacement piece is lovely. Shipment to St. Paul took a week; wish it could be faster.

YAY Dupoini!

 Recommended Product

Thank you for the wide selection of silk dupoini. I am making an untraditional wedding dress and the gown is BLUE! Thebride has a very specific color palette and I found exactly what I was looking for on your site. I ordered a sample and was pleasantly surprised that it fairly matched the color of the picture online.

Pros: The vibrant color, the iridescence of the fibers.

Cons: None

PERFECT SHADE OF RED

 Recommended Product

I am using this wonderful red dupioni for the costume of one of my current figure sculptures, "The Lady in Red". She is wearing a gown from the 1880's, and her background is red tile and red marble. This silk is so vivid that she will easily stand out from the scenery. As always NY Fashion Center has had exactly what I need for many of my pieces. Thanks again!

Pros: First of all, the color. But the drape of this dupioni is exactly doing what I need it to do for her gown. I really couldn't ask for anything more.

Cons: Absolutely nothing.

Beautiful fabric

 Recommended Product

The dupioni is stunning and the color is even more beautiful in person. A swatch gave me a good idea of the fabric but in actual yardage it's gorgeous.

Pros: The fabric has a beautiful, rich color. Perfect for what I need.

Cons: Shreds, but most silks and satins do.

I would recommend this to a friend
