Coloured Tulles and Nets

Carnival Fabrics

Belinda

We offer a range of coloured nets and tulles for all types of dress making, from bridal to ballet tutus, dance and theatre costumes and prom.

Tulles are a light weight and extremely fine man-made netting which are often starched to give them different degrees of stiffness or drape.  Using a hexagon shaped weave, tulle can be made from various fibres, such as nylon, rayon or silk.

Originating from the City of Tulle, Southern France, back in the early 1700's, tulle became commonly used to accentuate a fuller skirt and provide a floaty look as it is much more lightweight than layers of fabric.

Tulles are commonly used for wedding veils, gowns, under or over layers for skirts and stiffer tulles or net for ballet tutus or costumes.
