Deep Purple Violet Iridescent Dupioni Silk Fabric 25 x 16.75
The deep purple violet color of this iridescent dupioni silk fabric has a tint of blue to it resulting from the cross thread combination of deep purple and a saturated bluish purple. This bluish cast becomes more prominent when the silk is viewed in cool or indirect natural light.
With iridescent silk fabrics, often the pairing of different colors causes the overall color impression of the silk to change depending on the angle of light and the light conditions. This silk fabric is an example of that phenomenon, and the images depict the shift from cool to warm in the purple color. This silk has a sheen that approaches brilliant. Because the silk has a sheen that approaches brilliant, the highlights can make the color appear lighter than it really is. I photographed a larger piece of this silk in a variety of natural light conditions, all without flash, and the remnant is 25" wide x 16.75" long.
