Previously known as our “Arctic White” taffeta, we’ve chosen to rename this beauty in order to reduce confusion with some of the other silks we offer!

It’s a solid warm white that possesses the same purity and innocence as the renowned flower made popular by the classic song in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “The Sound of Music”!

In German, the word 'Edelweiss' is a combination of 'edel,' which means noble, and 'weiss,' which means white, and the flower has come to symbolize devotion because it grows in some of the toughest alpine conditions in the world…

Lady pirates were fierce and adventurous women who took to the high seas in search of treasure and adventure. Captains like Anne Bonny and Mary Read were known for their bravery, cunning, and boldness, and were often just as feared and respected as their male counterparts. They sailed the seas in search of riches and fame while their ships were manned by loyal crew members. They were true swashbucklers, living by their own rules and defying societal norms.

"Lady Jack" embodies that same spirit of adventure and defiance. The deep plum-and-black pairing evokes a sense of exoticism, mystery, and danger, while the dots add a playful touch that suggests the idea of breaking free from convention. Lady Jack exudes a sense of daring and fearlessness, just like the lady pirates who sailed the high seas.

It is adorned with tiny textured microdots that measure 0.5mm.

This cream-and-off-white fabric is so luminous and eye-catching that to wear it is to be the center of attention! Originally, “limelight” was a type of stage lighting used during the early 20th century. It was created by heating a piece of lime to incandescence, producing a bright white light. Actors or performers who stood in the path of the limelight would be illuminated brightly, drawing the audience's focus to them. Therefore, being "in the limelight" referred to being in a prominent position on stage, where all eyes were on the performer. Over time, the phrase evolved beyond its theatrical origins to describe anyone or anything that is the focus of widespread attention.

The herringbones measure just 3 millimeters or 1/8”, so they are subtle. Woven as a high-quality jacquard - each herringbone is inlaid right into the fabric!

Width & weight: 54” and 100 grams.
