The Silk Road
Andrew Bloom’s love affair with silk has earned him the moniker “Silk Baron.” The Baron
explains how the love affair began:
instant I saw dupioni silk, I fell in love with it. It has a unique sheen that makes each color
absolutely glow, and the raw, uneven texture of the fabric offsets the
colors perfectly. The range of different colors is stunning—each hue has
its own multi-dimensional personality.”
"Although i was broke at the time, I knew
immediately that I had to find a way to offer the silk to people in the
U.S.; I knew instinctively that other people would fall in love with
this exceptional fabric just
like I did so I took a chance and put my last few
dollars into importing some swatches. The silks spoke for themselves
and within weeks I had a client base that remains loyal to this day. Thus, Silk Baron was born
and the rest is history. Now, nine years later, we
are the leading online provider of dupioni silk, and it's no joke to say
my life is infinitely more colorful!"
Silk Baron provides the finest-quality silk in a wide array of exotic
hues at an unbelievably low
cost. Our dupioni silk begins in China, where each
thread is made from the healthiest, highest quality chinese silkworms. The raw silk yarn is then sent to India, where textile production is a tradition
dating back thousands of
years. There, each thread is handwoven into
beautiful bolts of color by master weavers and throwsters. The silk is
then shipped exclusively to our warehouse for distribution.
Silk Baron now stocks more than 60,000 yards of silk and has a revolving inventory of over 700
different kinds and colors of fabric.
silk is ideal for a range of custom projects. the light hand of the
fabric and distinctive
shimmer lends itself to wedding gowns and
bridesmaids’ dresses. The range of unusual colors and drape of the
fabric makes it ideal for interior designers working on custom window
treatments and upholstered pieces.
Dressmakers, set designers and costumers will find
the textile perfect for bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses, as well as
medieval and renaissance costumes.
