This visually stunning, lightweight, high quality satin was originally created for a renowned British ladies and menswear designer famous for their fine occasion wear with quirky and elegant styles; inspired by history and the natural world. We decided to name this fabric SOS; as an acronym that stands for Special Occasion Satin, referencing this particular fabric and its sister fabrics in the collection.

Deco Egyptian Odyssey is a finely woven lightweight polyester satin twill with a stunningly printed panelled design that will certainly make a statement with its versatile style. This silken stunner will appeal to those who love statement designer and vintage style in rich complementary tones.
Featuring an impressive archway, crested by a pair of elegant mythical birds who appear to be the guardians of the symbolic central lotus flower. Sinuous bands of colour and tiled design create the outer areas of the central motif and are infilled with tiled Egyptian Deco motifs of palm fans and papyrus reeds. Fire red, handsome burgundy and vintage pink are combined to great effect with steel grey-blue hues featured in this stunner, bringing to mind the iconic Chrysler Building of New York City, famous for its Egyptian revival style.
This panelled design is printed twice (side by side) across the width and spanning a length of 96cm. Fabulous for making garments with the design repeating on the back. The 96cm length makes it ideal for tunics, dresses and kimono style robes with statement individuality, and certainly a conversation piece. (2 x prints per 96cm panel).
Boasting a super soft silky feel and subtle sheen, you would be forgiven for thinking this was silk. This first rate satin has a sumptuous hand which is stable width and lengthwise with a delicious drape. All you have to decide now is what to make.
Deco Egyptian Odyssey will of course make stunning occasion wear pieces, dresses with drapey details, bow tie blouses and shift dresses with cowl necks, simple dolman sleeved tops. Be clever with your cutting and you can create striking effects. Quick-make slashed-neck scarf style tops will all add a hint of luxury to a simple jeans and top outfit. Take this elegant wonder and create '60s inspired A-line dresses with a Mary Quant style. Wear with statement boots or shoes for a fabulous stand alone piece and show off your Deco Egyptian Odyssey.
