Surface sheen and slubs in the weave are characteristic of silk dupionni, and this one lives up to its luxurious reputation. It's reminiscent of a Burberry plaid. The basic color is light tan. Then red stripes are woven both lengthwise and crosswise. Bands of black and white run crosswise, while they are crossed by lengthwise stripes of soft grey. This silk is crisp with a bit of body, so make shirts, vests, and tops.
