Silk Tulle – Tulle is French and is named after Tulle, France, where the fabric was first made by machine in 1768.   Tulle is pronounced [tool]  and  is a fine, diaphanous, lightweight fabric produced from silk, cotton or other fibers.



Since tulle does not ravel, hemming is not necessary although beading can be used on the bottom of hems for a fancy finish.  Silk tulle is much softer than nylon or polyester tulle.Multi colored silk tulle gown | Esposa Beirut
