Summer Bloom Silk Satin
Summer Bloom was originally designed by the silk weavers of Spitalfields, and has been recreated by Damask Raven for your 18th century costuming desires. Made of a light-weight 16MM silk satin, this elegantly draped silk satin waits only for your imagination to bring this fabulous fabric in to costuming life in your American, French, or English styled robes. Vive la Revolucion!
The only limit on your use of silk satin is your imagination. Use it in Cosplay, 18th Century dress, Costume College, or even Victorian dress, as it was not at all uncommon to cut down and re-purpose past fashions for current use…much as we do today!
Damask Raven specializes in re-creating lavish silks for costuming and fashion apparel, and the 18th century wouldn’t have reached the heights of fashion it did without the dedication of the weavers at Spitalfields in England and Lyon in France. This recreated Spitalfields Silk Satin design is brought to you by Damask Raven–creating History in Style.
From a time when Silk was literally worth its weight in gold, Summer Bloom is 152 cm wide, approximately 60″ wide, and is a light weight 16 MM, perfect for Ottoman robes, or Victorian Haute Couture. Be Advised–silk satin is a naturally very languid fabric, with not a lot of starch. If using for skirts from the structured Victorian Era, Damask Raven highly recommends flat lining with Silk Organza to obtain the perfect crispness in your silk skirts. If using for Turkish or Oriental fashions, let drape naturally, as this buttery soft fabric drapes elegantly of its own volition.
