Britex Fabrics loves everything about silk and it shows. Silk is a natural fiber that is usually derived from the mulberry silkworm’s cocoons. Silk has it all; it is smooth, soft, strong, and lustrous. Silk is ethereal for a summer frock, and just as smart for a winter frock-coat lining. We delight in traipsing about to find you the most chic Italian silks, natty necktie silks, brilliant jacquard silks, and airy sheer silk chiffons.
Quickview This oh-so-elegant Italian silk crepe de chine was used by one of our favorite Italian designers, and it's one of our favorites as well. This classic silk features cool shades of taupe and cream in a paintbrush design on a deep black background. This would make a dramatic wide-sleeved sleeved kimono, lined in contrasting vibrant red china silk. Made in Italy. This fabric is 56" wide.$89.99
A deliciously soft stretch charmeuse from Italy, in yummy chocolate brown and raspberry pink. This small-scale geometric pattern (1/2" repeat) would be scrumptious as a fitted cap-sleeved top, worn with an unstructured chocolate brown linen suit. One-way stretch. Made in Italy. This fabric is 56" wide.
Quickview This graceful silk burnout is primarily black and cream, with subtle taupe highlights, in an over-sized tulip floral design. Satin elements are as soft and fluid as the lithe chiffon base. This striped sheer is best worn with an attitude of conviction and dramatic lipstick; it would look lovely as a chic shirtwaist, dress, or as palazzo pants. 100% silk. 54" wide.$94.99

A medium-scale pattern (repeat is 6 1/2") features chevron shapes in black and geometric outlines in white on a warm cinnamon brown background.

It will make a statement anywhere you go, from an exotic vacation to your favorite local haunt. 100% silk. 45" wide.$39.99

Quickview This unique silk/polyester organza is endlessly interesting. An intricate design combines alternating squares of burgundy and violet with jacquard motifs in light grey with gold outlines.

Quickview This juicy soft tomato red silk jacquard fabric comes from France, where jacquard weaves originated.
