Dupion Silk is made by using a fine thread in the warp and a rough uneven thread in the weft. The uneven thread is usually sourced from two or more entangled cocoons. This mix creates a tightly woven surface with a lustrous finish.
Dupion Silk has a rustic appearance due to it's handwoven nature and is slightly thicker than other silk fabrics.
