For ideas on how to handle it, read on, or contact a specialist at Window Products serving Branford for even more tips.

A Little History

For more than 2,000 years, silk was the best kept secret in China. But in the last 30 years, world silk production has approximately doubled, despite the man-made fibers developed to replace it. Silk is a natural protein fiber that is woven into the stunning textiles that is used in clothing, upholstery, rugs, bedding, wall hangings, and even window treatments.

Bringing Silk Home

You can bring silk into a room in many ways. For example, decorative silk throw pillows can bring selected colors together to coordinate and complete a room’s overall look. Or you can go bolder by reupholstering an old piece of furniture such as an ottoman, a loveseat, or a chair—using silk for the fabric will completely transform the room. Or consider adding new window fashions that feature silk. Hunter Douglas Window Fashions offer an extensive collection of over 4,000 fabrics, materials, and colors, including timeless silks. From silk fabrics to sleek decorative tapes, silk can be part of the perfect pattern and design that will elevate your décor. Check out the Vignette® Modern Roman Shades Textured Silks Collection, which includes Etched, India Silk, Satin Weave, and Shantung. These beautiful silks have a large range of textures and sheens and are available in a variety of inspirational hues.

Care and Cleaning

Silk is prized for its natural beauty. Considered the strongest of nature’s fibers, silk has excellent elasticity and resilience, which helps custom pillows maintain their shape and beauty. Silk is also resistant to mildew and moths; however, moisture, over time, will weaken the fibers, so dry-cleaning is recommended for care.
