Our silk

Silk is well known as a luxurious fabric and has a long and rich history dating back to ancient China. Legend has it that the discovery of silk was accidental, when a Chinese Empress was drinking tea in her garden and a cocoon fell into her cup, unraveling into a long, fine fiber. Impressed by the beauty and strength of the fiber, she began cultivating silkworms for their cocoons, and the rest is history.

Today, silk remains one of the most sought-after fabrics in the world, prized for its softness, shine, and durability. The knowledge and technique for production is a profession often handed down from generation to generation - and in line with this heritage, suppliers of the DEA KUDIBAL silk have many years of experience producing premium quality silk.

The DEA KUDIBAL signature silk

The DEA KUDIBAL signature silk is a blend of the luxurious mulberry silk and 8-10% elastane for the premium wear and feel that comes with a stretch silk. 

Mulberry silk is a type of silk obtained from the cocoons of mulberry silkworms. The unique detail is, that the worms are fed exclusively with leaves from the mulberry tree, which leads to silk strands that are extremely long, strong and pure in colour. Mulberry silk is widely considered to be the highest quality of silk due to its smooth, soft, and lustrous texture - this is why we use mulberry silk as the key element of our DEA KUDIBAL signature silk.  

When designing the DEA KUDIBAL silk selections, our design team has a need for different fabric features depending on the specific styles. They choose between three different weaves:

STRETCH SILK SATIN - An atlas weave, which is known for having a shiny and a matt fabric side. The weave is very fine and recognised by the perfectly soft and smooth surface.

STRETCH SILK TWILL - A structured weave that leaves a slight texture to the smooth surface. The twill weave is highly durable and - like the satin weave - resistant to creases.

STRETCH SILK GEORGETTE - A lightweight crepe style weave with a semi-sheer and matt finish. The georgette weave is known for its soft texture and delicate draping qualities.

The weave for each DEA KUDIBAL silk style is always carefully selected to fit the desired look and feel perfectly.
