Dupioni vs. Shantung: What's the Difference?

If you’ve ever wondered, “what’s the difference between silk shantung and silk dupioni?”, you’ve come to the right place! Shantung and dupioni are the most heavily used fabrics in the market today—and especially to the untrained eye, it can be quite difficult to differentiate the two.

Though very similar, there are some slight differences between silk shantung fabric and silk dupioni fabric. To those who are curious about their differences, let me give you a quick breakdown!

Silk Dupioni


Silk Dupioni fabric has a very distinctive feature that gives it a gorgeous glimmering effect when moved around in light. The incredible sheen and vibrant colors are a result of its unique creation. Harvested from double cocoons or from single cocoons that are interlocked together, silk dupioni fabric is generally created through the use of two colors in the weave—this property is known as iridescence. Completely hand-woven, silk dupioni fabric also has much more prominent slubs and is the thickest of the two materials.

Silk Shantung


In contrast, silk shantung fabric does not produce the same iridescent effect because it only uses one color in the weave. Furthermore, this fabric has hardly any slubs, but those that do will have much smaller in thread width than a silk dupioni. Unlike its counterpart, silk shantung is machine-woven.

I hope I provided you with some useful information. The next time you are in a fabric store, test your textile skills and find out if you’ll be able to notice a difference between the two fabrics right away!
