Product Options

Yardage:
100% Silk 54 inches wide 

Chinese, India, Persian, English & French silks are all advertised in the 18th and 19th century.  Taffetas, Lustrings, Persians, Damasks, Brocades & Paduasouys were all terms used to deliniate the various styles and weaves.  Padusouys (now known as failles) were woven with a slight rib giving them a  bit more body and crispness.  The Barbara Johnson book (pg 9) shows a garnet paduasoy "nightgown" with matching fringe being made in 1762.  Florence Montgomery says it could contain a pattern or be brocaded.  All social levels wore silk down to the lower sorts who could find silk in the second hand market or having it provided by a master or mistress. This lustrous &  crisp  silk is a wonderful choice for Lady's gowns, petticoats & jackets,  men's suiting, men's banyans and wrapping gowns, lady's workbags, sashes, pelisses, mantelets, mitts and other accessories.
