byfreer has always been fabric forward. divine silks, linens & velvets speak for themselves...we simply find the right way for them to drape & complement your look. our fabrics are different & special.
stretch silk satin
our divine stretch silk satin is composed of 95% silk & 5% elastane. additionally it is 19 momme (mm) silk. that little bit of stretch & luxury heavier weight means that your clothes wear better, last longer & feel more comfortable. this beautiful fabric is a signature for byfreer & features two varied sides to the cloth. one side is matte & the other is a shiny satin. depending on the design, we will use different sides for a different look. as always, your stretch silk satin pieces are all machine washable!
another byfreer silk staple, we frequently make pieces in silk georgette & double silk georgette. the former is a sheer, super lightweight fabric that is perfect for layering. an idea fabric to cover up arms or provide an extra layer without adding too much warmth. the latter is only semi-sheer - completely opaque depending on whether or not it is dyed. It features a beautiful drape & looks & feels similar to a crepe de chine.
viscose silk velvet
viscose silk velvet has quickly become a byfreer staple cloth. from soft, long, drapey pants to bias skirts in muted olive green tones to statement golds... our velvets are the ultimate transeasonal luxe look with total comfort. to achieve our signature frayed edges, we send our velvets off to a high-speed commercial dryer which frays the edges for us. this means that you can put your silk velvets in the dryer after machine washing & we actually recommend it! it fluffs up the pile & keeps your velvets looking shiny.
byfreer also uses a variety of soft, italian linens, stretch linen blends, cotton silk, bamboo linen, organic cottons... we design the majority of our prints in house & are heavily involved in every step of design from cloth-to-clothes.
