Purple Silk Organza | Inspired By Our Fabric Of The Week

Our Purple Silk Organza is a luxurious, hand-woven fabric in a gorgeous, vibrant, violet purple. It is exclusively hand-crafted by an innovative cooperative in Cambodia, where master local craftsmanship is combined with exquisite, contemporary design. It is a beautifully delicate, hand spun and hand woven textile with a gorgeous, featherweight feel and a structured body and handle.

The Purple Silk Organza is made from natural, peace-silk fibres. If you’ve not heard of peace silk before or would like to know more about how silk is made in general, I’d encourage you to read this article.

With an almost zero-carbon production footprint, this fabric’s traditional, handmade qualities offer a unique exclusivity combined with social and environmental benefits – you don’t you feel at all guilty for splashing out on it a little this week! It is ideal for clothing, particularly evening dresses and for interior decoration: trims and ornamental curtains. As you know I love Pinterest, so I thought I’d scour some of my favourite pins for some other ways we can use this gorgeous Purple Silk Organza. Here are my favourite finds:
