Silk Dupion is the most widely known silk and is made in India. It is a medium weight silk. It has a slub that gives it a textured effect. The degree of texture does vary from colour to colour. The slubs in Silk Dupion occur when two silk worms spin cocoons close together. There are two types of Silk Dupion, handwoven Silk Dupion, which is more textured, and powerwoven Silk Dupion, which is smoother, although it still has some slub.
Embroidered Silk is ideal for interior furnishing as well as for introducing something different into your designs. The designs are embroidered on to Silk Indian Dupion
