The wedding day is as special for the groom as it is for the bride and he too should look and feel his best. Platinum Bridal Fabrics proudly supply a fantastic selection of materials perfectly suited to creating a range of garments for the groom, including ties, cravats, handkerchiefs, cummerbunds and waistcoats.
Lovingly manufactured on state-of-the-art looms at our mill in Darwen, the Platinum Bridal Fabrics collection of woven brocades provides the most comprehensive choice of these bold and striking materials. Each is named after a European city to reflect their diverse and metropolitan nature, which is created by weaving warp and weft thread of varying colours. Valencia, with its high-gloss waves undulating across a tactile satin background, is one of our most popular woven Jacquard Brocades.
Plain fabrics, used creatively, can form garments just as striking as those made using woven brocades. Our Contessa collection is specially woven, producing a material that does not snag in the way that many other plain fabrics do while the Majestic range is perfect for creating stylish bow ties. Elegant and understated, our plain fabrics are designed to offer a simple yet luxurious aesthetic.
Our sumptuous embroidered fabrics are produced in Austria and have been popular since their introduction to the Platinum Bridal Fabrics collection in the summer of 2013. During the intricate process of embroidery, a high-quality base fabric is embellished with fine thread to give an alternative look to woven fabrics. Stitches can be added in all directions and contrast levels are high, making these fabrics incredibly eye-catching. Manhattan is perhaps the most striking design within this collection, featuring a dense pattern of swirling shapes across a subtly-textured satin-backed dupion.
When designing a waistcoat, attention must be given to the lining. Adding a complementary or contrasting touch, our lining fabrics are available in a choice of more than 50 colours including navy, mauve and claret, meaning finding the perfect tone is a matter of simplicity.
