Astral is a luxurious midweight Italian sateen suiting coming in a pearlescent cream colourway. In its natural state, it is unbleached and raw, taken directly from the loom. Beautifully tactile, it has a subtle wave-like jacquard throughout. Its soft sateen finish makes for a natural glow as it effortlessly catches the light. A truly opulent fabric,this wool holds great structure and is an ideal fabric for tailored pleats and pin tucks. While structured, it also falls gracefully. Asti would be the perfect structured dress, pleated plant and blazer, or form-fitting bodice.
A luxury fabric, also favoured for bridal.
