Here, we’ve gathered our favourite Valentine’s fabrics to give you the inspiration you need to start creating. From the ethereal chiffon to the regal duchess satin, the bold Chinese Brocade Dragon, and the plush cotton velvet- these fabrics are perfect for Valentine’s Day celebrations.
Chiffon, with its sheer and lightweight texture, is synonymous with romance and ethereal outfits. It is a lightweight, transparent fabric in canvas weave made from crepe twist yarns. Its drapes and soft feel are ideal for making a flowing gown, a romantic blouse, or even a scarf to add romance to your Valentine’s Day outfit.
Duchess satin is a heavy fabric with a sheer and smooth finish that is primarily used for couture gowns and lingerie. This heavy and luxurious textile has a higher thread count than other satins, which makes it an excellent choice for a Valentine’s Day soirée.
Chinese Brocade Dragon
Dragon symbolises strength, prosperity and good fortune. This Chinese Brocade Dragon fabric in bold colours offers a smooth metallic sheen, making it ideal for special garments.
Silky satin is a glossy fabric with a fluid drape that is synonymous with sensuality at its finest. Its smooth surface and glossy finish create a sleek and alluring look, making it an excellent choice for intimate attire. Whether it’s a sultry slip
dress or a skirt, elegant lingerie, or a tailored suit, silky satin enhances the allure of the occasion. Let the fabric caress your skin as you celebrate love in style.
For a cozy and intimate Valentine’s Day celebration, consider the plush comfort of cotton velvet. It has a thicker, firmer, and heavier nap than other velvets, with a more stable woven base, so it is somewhat easier to work with. Denser than cotton velveteen, with a better drape, it can be used for formal wear.
Organic Cotton Poplin
Organic cotton poplin is both versatile and durable and can be used in many different ways to express your personal style. Natural, wrinkle-resistant and soft, it can be used to make a variety of items, including tops, trousers, dresses, blouses, and trousers.
