Product description

Product description

Silk taffeta is a luxury classic. Sturdy, tightly woven, with an elegant sheen, it falls in great, architectural folds and has a characteristic scroop (the rustling sound peculiar to taffeta). Perfect for wedding gowns and bridal fashions, ball gowns, and cocktail dresses, it also works wonders for accessories (clutches, wraps, flowers, bows) and home decor.

Taffeta is quite stiff, behaving much like tissue paper. It holds its shape and works wonderfully in full, gathered skirts and structured garments. Taffeta combines well with lace and chiffon; try a silk lining such as habotai or silk serge. For a similar look with a bit less stiffness, you might try a fine silk dupioni.


We recommend dry cleaning this fabric at a reliable dry cleaner. Hand washing will make this fabric lose its stiffness and shine and take on a crêpe-like structure. Dry iron on the lowest setting. Avoid water droplets.


What defects can I expect?

The type of defect present in seconds fabric is always listed in the product parameters. Usually they are minor flaws and defects that occur only in part of the role (typically at the beginning or end). That's why our discounted seconds usually include only smaller pieces, not entire rolls.

Are your fabrics colorfast?

The fabrics in our core inventory, seasonal collections and limited editions are from repeated production cycles that we have quality-tested – given proper care their colors should not bleed. Fabrics that are on offer while supplies last are one-off products that have not been individually tested. We recommend doing a sample test.

Should I pre-shrink fabric before sewing?

If we recommend pre-shrinking for a particular fabric, we generally say so in the product description. As a rule, pre-shrinking is needed for linen, cotton, and rayon, but for finer fabrics (light rayon, Tencel and modal) proceed with care – don't use hot water or a hot iron, simply launder the fabric the way you will be laundering the completed garment.

Can I put goods on hold?

Yes. If you plan to pick up the goods in person at our store in Prague, you can put them on hold through the e-shop – there's a link just below the price on the product page. We will hold items for you for one week.

Do you accept orders by phone or email?

No. We only accept retail orders through the e-shop. This eliminates situations where someone else orders the last of an item while your order is still sitting in our inbox or lies jotted on a bit of paper by the phone. By purchasing online, you are putting an immediate hold on the product. Of course, you can always call or write to us if you need help making your selection.
