The gorgeous qualities of silk

This lovely client ordered some silk from China so these swags and tails could be made to hang over her window, with a pair of braid edged curtains underneath. It was worth the wait for this lovely quality silk which has a slub through it. The braids were ordered from a company in this country and are also silk. The colours are dyed to a great pigment that is a blend of blue and grey tones and although the tassles and the braid are not part of the same collection they work well together. Once hung they looked stunning on a backdrop of an Osborne & Little seriously over-the-top intricately designed wallpaper which has birds of paradise set against a 'duck-egg' blue.
