Faux Silk 85gsm

Best Seller Faux Silk 85gsm

High quality cost effective alternative to natural silk.

Our faux silk is a lightweight 100% polyester fabric manufactured to an exceptionally high standard. Similar to natural silk, it has a wide range of uses including clothing, scarves, lining and quilting.

The faux silk has a silky-smooth shine on the print face and matte finish on the back. It has a flowing drape giving it a luxurious look and feel.

The base colour is optic white and colour reproduction is incredibly strong. It is printed using dye sublimation which offers excellent wash fastness making it suitable for items that will be washed regularly.

Please note that prints are likely to be off grain.
