This circa 1970s genuine vintage French-made silk is luxuriously midweight with a slubbed design in black against an iridescent chrome cloth. It has a subtle sheen and is completely opaque. Wrinkle-resistant, the silk threads are incredibly soft and give it natural drape whilst maintaining good structure. A rarity, this fabric would make into a divine pair of trousers with a soft pleat or pintuck, a spring weight vest, jacket or incredible bag.

From the workroom of New Zealand's oldest tie manufacturer, Parisian, est. 1919, comes a collection of exceptional fabrics from Europe. Making in the heart of Auckland for over 100 years, Parisian continues to apply the tradition of craft and quality honed over four generations. Buy a piece of textile history, with this fine collection of archival fabrics.
