Gold Silks - Plain and
I recently purchased two metres
of each of these silks - they are truly luscious! The figured
silk especially is to die for. What is not visible in the picture
above, but is almost visible in the one below, is that there is a
metallic silver woven in, giving it a really opulent sheen. Below
is the detail of the border design which runs along one selvedge,
which I was unaware of at the time of purchase (eBay is great!)
but which I am very glad is there.

I am currently playing around with ideas for these fabrics.
