Dupioni

Knubly and slightly rough to the touch, this stiff material is made from the silk of two silk worms creating a cocoon together. The resulting silk strands from this double cocoon are left together during the spinning process, which is where dupioni gets its signature texture and sheen. Dupioni silk is sometimes confused with shantung, which has a similar knubly texture, but not to the extent of dupioni. This material can be worn year-round and keeps its shape very well.
