Double-Tiered Wedding Veil & Pearled Silk

June 9, 2010 by Britex Fabrics 2 comment(s)

Laura is wearing an enchanting handmade double-tiered wedding veil. The veiling is made of silk tulle, and it is adorned with silk ribbon and vintage silk lace edging. The edging lace has a pyramid motif that is reminiscent of the Art Deco era, and is lightly embellished with glass seed beads. One veil is 21” long, and the other one is 24” long ($345).

We have paired it with a stunning, understated silk from our 1st floor. This gleaming ballet pink silk is scattered with luminous white pearls. It is $49.99/yard and 45” wide.

    We have silk tulle on Britex Fabric's first floor. Silk tulle is exceptionally soft, with a fine hand. We have silk tulle imported from Switzerland in ivory and black, 118" wide, at $175 a yard. We have silk tulle imported from France in winter white, 55" wide, at $95 a yard. You are welcome to call us at 415-392-2910 if you have additional questions.
