Printing on Silk Impression Fabric
Our custom made Silk Impression fabric is very close the Silk Satin, give them a try and enjoy the beautiful results.
The front and back textures of the silk impression are the same, being smooth, silky and cool to the touch. The feel to the body is effortlessly comfortable, it’s so light that one barely notices it passing over the skin. It’s so soft and silky it has a very gentle touch. With a fragile flowing drape that slides over the hands and body very easily, it’s a very desirable material to work with. If the fabric allows room to move in, then it’s very breathable, if it’s worn skin tight then the closed weave provides a locked in heat which makes the material very temperate. Despite being quite stiff it is also very soft and smooth.
The base colour of the fabric is a glistening white. The material has a semi-transparent quality, also giving the fabric a shining finish to the surface. When it comes to colour intensity, the silk impression provides a bright contrast, strong against the bright white, the colours become ever so slightly faded due to the semi-translucent nature of the material. The detail of the final print delivers very crisp precise detail work. Lines and intricacies show up very well within the fabric printing. With the intense shine given off by the finish, light catches the material easily and reflects light beautifully.
The many diverse qualities of this fabric make it ideal for quilting, clothing embellishments, and especially clothing and bag linings.
