About: Shantung silk possesses a beautiful hand, crisp and granular with visible striations. Shantung is a heavier, premium silk, featuring a lightly pebbled surface and ribbed effect. Our silk contains slightly different tones of pigment in the warp and weft, giving our silk its contrasting iridescence. Shantung silk is a machine woven fabric, often used for formal attire, making this silk perfect for all party occasions! Lightweight, this fabric can transition into all seasons.

Care: To keep its luster over time, we recommend hand washing with Eucalan or visit your local eco-friendly dry cleaner. If you’re short on time, our silk is machine washable - gentle wash cool with similar colors. Lay flat to dry, and avoid direct sunlight. For a crisp finish, iron with low heat to smooth out hems and wrinkles. 

Shop: Coming this fall.
