about about the product

This shade is made from the granddaddy of silk - Dupion. And to think it all started out with a friendly little worm spinning its stuff. Now, pay attention, there are a couple of things you need to understand about this silk - first is that it’s ordinarily woven from two distinct threads - the warp and the weft (for the weaving nerds amongst you) - and so the color often has a lovely iridescence. Finished with a delicate stitch seam. We call this color Saffron, but in truth from one angle it’s a rich orangey ochre hue and from another it’s a milder yellow color. Beautiful really, but we tell you this because still photography cannot always catch the true lustre of Dupion silk.

The next point about this silk is that there are some imperfections - known as slubs - where two threads of silk yarn are twisted together a little more thickly than usual. Slubs happen, and should be celebrated as a reminder that silk is a natural, organic and beautiful fibre...not grumbled about! We hope you love and live happily ever after with your glorious Dupion silk shade. And if you made it this far...
