These are very expensive to manufacture using the highest quality burn-out silk velvets. The velvet burnout process, or "Dévoré" (to devour), is achieved by applying an acid to a natural, protein fiber (silk) and natural non-protein fiber (rayon). The acid "burns out" the non-protein fiber leaving only the sheer woven silk thereby creating elaborately intricate designs. The technique was popularized in the 1920s - typically used on evening gowns and shawls. Then this remarkably beautiful fabric is hand beaded to further embellish the magical qualities.
