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.

Papyrus Tiles is a finely woven lightweight polyester satin twill with a stunning Egyptian Art Deco revival tiled printed design. It will certainly make a statement with its versatile style and is also the perfect coordinate for its sister fabric Deco Egyptian Odyssey. This silken stunner will appeal to those who love statement designer and vintage style featuring rich complementary tones, which are ideal for both gents and ladies wear.
Papyrus Tiles features an allover tiled design, infilled with Egyptian Deco motifs of papyrus reeds. Handsome burgundy and vintage pink are combined to great effect with steel grey-blue hues, bringing to mind the iconic Chrysler Building of New York City, famous for its Egyptian revival style.
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.
Papyrus Tiles 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 Papyrus Tiles.
Spoil yourself or someone special and create stylish and sumptuous traditional pyjamas with coordinating piped collars and pocket tops and matching kimono robe. Create retro/vintage style robes for the man in your life with a smoking jacket vibe.
Use two sister fabrics from our SOS collection: Papyrus Tile and Deco Egyptian Odyssey to create a stunning two tone effect, like the robe in Vanessa Mooncie's - The Gentleman's Wardrobe. This excellent book has plenty of fab vintage clothing ideas (with patterns) where you will find more opportunities to use the amazing Special Occasion Satins.
