The Secret of Silk Fabric
For more than 2,000 years, the Chinese kept the secret of silk to themselves. However, world silk production has approximately doubled during the last 30 years, even though numerous man-made fibers have been developed to replicate it. A natural protein fiber, silk is woven into the stunning textiles. In addition to clothing, silk can be used for upholstery, wall coverings, rugs, bedding, wall hangings, and even window treatments.
Adding Silk Through Window Treatments
Hunter Douglas offers a collection of over 4,000 fabrics, materials, and colors to choose from in its window fashions lines. Among the choices, of course, are beautiful, timeless silks. From silk fabrics to sleek decorative tapes, you’ll find the perfect pattern and design to elevate your décor. Specifically, consider the Vignette® Modern Roman Shades Textured Silks Collection, which includes Etched, India Silk, Satin Weave, and Shantung. These beautiful silks have a large range of textures and sheens and are available in a variety of inspirational colors and hues.
Bringing Silk to a Room
Aside from window treatments, there are a number of ways to introduce silk to your design. For example, you could go with decorative silk pillows, which can bring selected colors together for a complete, coordinated room. The beauty of silk fabrics alone is inspirational. When you’re ready to make a larger statement, consider reupholstering a favorite chair. A classic ottoman, loveseat, or chair re-covered in a classic silk fabric will transform the look of a room.
Care and Maintenance of Silk Fabric
Silk is prized for its luxurious natural beauty. It is also considered one of nature’s strongest fibers. It has excellent elasticity and resilience and is also resistant to mildew and moths; however, moisture, over time, will weaken the fibers, so dry-cleaning is recommended for care.
