Silk Shantung fabric is a crisp, thin, and shiny fabric that features a raised, slub texture. Woven from 100% natural and hypoallergenic silk, Silk Shantung fabric is woven in a plain style weave with silk fibers harvested from the mulberry silkworm. Silk shantung is more lustrous than fabrics made from other materials because silk fibers are flat, and thus reflect light at many angles. Additionally, Silk Shantung receives its slubbed texture from irregularities in the silk fibers, meaning that no two pieces look the same. Silk Shantung fabric is an elegant and luxurious fabric that when hung, has a crisp and light drape. Measuring 54 inches in width, Silk Shantung is 0.15 millimeters thick, has an 85 GSM, and weighs approximately 4 ounces per linear yard. Silk Shantung fabric is available in a variety of vibrant colors.
Silk Shantung fabric is a stylish fabric that can be used to craft apparel and decors.

Take advantage of shantung’s ability to drape and make pleated, bunched, or other types of flowy clothing.

This is my third purchase with Fabric Wholesale direct! My first purchase was over one year ago and I was impressed! My second purchase was the Silk material and they were so beautiful and the quality was exceptional that is why I ordered a second order of the silk thus, making it my third order total! I highly recommend Fabric Wholesale Direct. Their fabrics are first quality, they are not seconds! I highly recommend Fabric Wholesale Direct you will never be disappointed!
I ordered the irredescent green shantung. The fabric has a lovely sheen to it and the color changes a little upon movement. I made a blouse with it and it came out quite nice. My order did take a longer time than usual to arrive.
I am very happy with the fabric and the color, I've been looking for this color for awhile now. It came quickly and was exactly what I expected
Nice silk but color is lighter according to the picture.
I thought the material was high quality. I got the purple gold and you can see the purple nicely depending on how it hangs or the lights hit it. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
