Product Options


100% Silk 54 inches wide

Chinese, India, Persian, English & French “taffety” or taffeta were all common silks advertised in the 18th and 19th century.  Woven plain they were made in a variety of colors, some changeable, some “chine” or warp printed, some with stripes, checks and patterns.  All were woven in a like fashion varying only in their width or number of silk yarns in the warp and weft.  After the American Revolution great quantities of silk came to the colonies directly from China, including taffetas, satins and lustrings.  This taffetta has a wonderful crisp hand and is suitable for Lady’s Gowns, Petticoats, Jackets, Banyans and Wrapping Gowns, Waistcoats, Men's Suiting, Trims,  Linings and Accessories.
