COLOR SWATCHES

We understand it is difficult to select colors from a computer monitor.  Therefore, we will send up to 6 swatches free of charge via regular mail.  Please e-mail us at kimeradesign@earthlink.net or call us at 718.422.1147 with your request.  

Please note that due to the hand-dyed nature of all our silks, there may be slight dye-lot variations between the swatch you receive and the final dress color.

SILK SHANTUNG

Our most popular fabrication – a mediumweight 100% silk with natural slubs and texture.  It is available in almost 100 colors.  Please view our shopping section which features many of our best-selling shades.

We also offer a less-textured machinemade version available in approximately 50 shades.  It resembles a slightly textured version of silk taffeta.

BROCADE

We offer a wide range of brocade patterns which vary seasonally.  Most of the patterns are available in a silk/rayon blend; however, certain patterns are only in a polyester quality which has slightly less sheen and is a bit lighter in weight.  Please contact us for additional information on available patterns.

OTHER FABRICATIONS

We have available other silk qualities such as organza, duchess satin, taffeta, chiffon, georgette, and charmeuse.  

We may also offer seasonal fabrics such as cotton eyelet, printed voile, and specialty brocades.

You may also provide your own fabrics such as lace or saris.  We can recommend some resources if you are interested in this option.

Please contact us for additional information and/or swatches.
