    Hi can anybody tell me what this fabric is please? It's been used to make a large door bow, it's fairly stiff and holds its own weight and shape.

    thanks x

    Welcome to the forum.

    From the weave it looks like it could be a linen, but is certainly stiffened in some way if it holds its shape in a large bow.
    Other than that I have no idea, but be patient and others might be able to help.

    Thanks, I wondered if it was organdie/organdy?

    Looks to me like Sinamay. Has an open weave but very stiff, used in hat making and for bows etc

    I don't think it's as stiff as sinemay but thanks! Here's another photo, this shows the material better x

    If it is shiny could it be bridal organza

    Hi looks like it is a crystal organza fabric, that has had stiffing applied.
