Introducing Mulberry Silk Drapes at DrapeStyle

We are really happy to have a new line of Mulberry Silk Drapes at DrapeStyle.  Mulberry Silk is simply the absolute finest quality of Silk Fabric you can buy.  This Silk is harvested from Silk Worms that have been raised in climate controlled rooms and fed nothing but a diet of pure Mulberry Leaves.  The result is the finest, softest most uniform Silk fibers available.  The fibers are so consistent that just one thread can be as long as 180 feet.

When woven into silk fabrics the long, uniform threads mean that the resulting fabrics are thick, uniform and free of almost all nubs or imperfections.  We are one of very few Manufacturers in the US that have been able to purchase the Mulberry Fabrics and we ordered them in 14 amazing exclusive Designer Colors.

Please order sample of this fabric and feel the difference for yourself.



Need Some Help Visualizing Your Custom Draperies?

Sometimes we all need a little help visualizing what the final outcome will look like.  Architects and Designers create renderings all the time to help their Clients “see” their ideas.  At DrapeStyle, we are happy to so the same.  After all, no one has a wider variety of custom draperies than we do.  So, we are happy to help you “visualize”.  If you are looking at one of our silk or linen draperies and would like a better view of what different fabric colors may look like just give one of our Designers a call.  We will either create a drawing, or sketch of a design for you or we will create a digital rendering where we adjust the colors of our drapery styles to match your selections.  In the end, you get a better visual tool to see what it is you are ordering before you place your custom drapery order.

Here are some examples:




Making Silk Drapes

At DrapeStyle we make a LOT of custom silk drapes.  Been making them for well over a decade and shipping them all over the US and Canada.  Most people know that silk is a natural fabric that is woven from the raw silk produced by the Silk Worm.  Most raw silk is harvested in China and then chipped to India where it is woven into Silk Fabric and shipped all over the world.  India has been the predominant producer of silk fabrics for literally hundreds of years.

Our silk fabrics arrive from India on rolls that average about 40-45 yards each.  They are all 54 inches wide.  The first thing that we do when we are preparing to make a set of silk drapes from our fabrics is to roll the fabric out against a light.  We do this to look for imperfections in the silk fabric before we make any draperies from it.  As a natural silk, most people know that it is going to have natural flaws or imperfections, especially Dupioni Silk.  At DrapeStyle we have set “standards” of what we allow to pass and what we reject.  When we find flaws that we reject we have to cut the entire length of fabric to remove the flawed area.  Silk is expensive and having to cut portions of fabric out of roll and discard them hurts our profit margins.  It’s not the way other Manufacturers do it but we think that it is the right thing to do.

Examining Silk Fabric for Drapery

Christian Sinatra

The Simple White Silk Drape

When we look at all of the custom drapery style that we make and sell everyday here at DrapeStyle we make some observations.  One truth that we see year-after-year in our business, as interior design trends change, is that there are a few styles that endure.  Think of them as the short black cocktail dress of fashion.  In Drapery, one of the classic styles that is a cornerstone of interior design is the classic white silk drapes that we make month after month.  It just seems that in any length, width or pleat style, the simple white silk drapes seem to compliment any interior.  We make them for Homeowners, Designers and even hotels and restaurants.  You just can’t go wrong with classic elegance and versatility.  White is always a “Designers best friend”.  It may often seem to be the “safe choice” but often times it is the best choice.  It has certainly proven itself to be an enduring classic for many, many years.

Oh, you may also want to try them paired with Sheers, Roman Shades, Roller Shades or even Shutters!
