Taffeta silk curtains are made from white silk cocoons that vary from country to country but generally originate in Southeast Asia. As a crisp and flowing fabric, taffeta silk curtains often appear stiff to the eye but prove luxuriously soft to the touch. As a full bodied material, taffeta silk drapes are considered one of the world's oldest royal fabrics as it was used for the highest monarchies across Europe throughout the textile trade.
Taffeta silk is woven with a very tight weave which makes it extra durable and appealing. The rather simple and plain design of the weave, however, is what makes it appropriate for everyday use. Taffeta silk lies virtually flat, as compared to most other fabrics, and has an identical back and front. Given the significant heft and weight of taffeta silk drapes, when there is additional fabric at the bottom of the window dressing, the materials is said to "pool" on the ground, as if a silky puddle of water had collected and mimicked nature's habits. There exist many different types of taffeta silk that include faille taffeta which is typically very heavy and firm. There is also tissue taffeta silk which is more transparent and less heavy or dense as the others. Shot taffeta silk has a candescent look to it as the multiple color scheme lends it a shimmery texture.
