We also have four additional fabric types: Starlight Satin, Coventry, Velvet, and Velveteen. Starlight Satin is used for Choir Stoles. Coventry is a heavier fabric used for some Choir Robes. Velvet and Velveteen are a lush fabric used for our tams and as an accent to certain specialize gowns like doctoral robes. Of course, we also have a variety of trim and tassel fabrics to highlight various aspects of our gowns.
A 100% VISA®* polyester gabardine fabric, this American made fabric is high quality, built to release stains, and has excellent life and draping qualities. It is also wrinkle resistant and washable. VISA®* fabrics like Seville offer lasting cleanability and absorbency, color retention that lasts four times longer than cotton or blends, minimal shrinkage over the life of the products, and includes a soft, natural feeling and a graceful drape. And Seville generally will not cause lint, or suffer fiber loss!

Silkstone is one of our coolest fabrics, yet it is very strong. This high quality fabric features a brushed finish, and is made from a 100% micro polyester fabric. It will wash well, will not wrinkle, and is opaque to dark clothing. Silkstone has an excellent draping quality and will give you many years of beautiful comfortable wear.
Made from 100% micro fiber polyester, Tissue Faille (pronounced "file") is a lightweight fabric with a silky feel and a slight sheen. It has an excellent draping quality. Though lightweight, it is an extremely strong fabric.
Starlight Washable Satin, and Acetate Satins
Starlight washable satin is machine washable, and color fast. These satins will not fade over time. On the other hand, acetate satins must be dry cleaned. Acetates are also not color fast, and are priced as "Imperial Satin" instead of Polyester.
This is an American made fabric. It is the highest quality we offer as far as durability. Coventry is wrinkle resistant and completely washable with "stain release" qualities. Coventry is a much heavier fabric than Seville, and we generally recommend Seville, Tissue Faille, or Silkstone instead for most choir robe purchases due to this fact.
