About Us History & Philosophy Founded in Atlanta, Georgia, JRB Silk Fabrics Inc. has evolved from a small, family-run business to an international company, respected for its naturally inspired fabrics. Silk is one of the strongest natural fibers, surpassing the tensile strength of steel. It’s inherently flame retardant and the insulating properties make it suitable for both residential and contract applications. In addition, it has the luster, texture and sensual appeal unmatched by any other fiber. Durability Silk is nature’s strongest fibers, having a tensile strength surpassing that of steel along with fine quality as luster, texture and beauty. Maps for the World War II fighter pilots were printed on silks to endure extreme conditions. In addition it is inherently flameproof which makes it desirable for both residential and contract applications. However, no warranties are expressed or implied against durability. Please see standards and product warranties paragraph below.
About Us Construction It is only natural for the irregularities and textural variations to occur while constructing natural fiber fabrics. Since no precise tension is placed across the fabric during weaving, so occasional bowing across the goods may result. The variations such as bars, shadings, mis- weave etc. are also inherent to silk and are appreciated. The home spun qualities of the hand woven fabric results in no two pieces alike. These are the very characteristics which make hand-woven fabrics so desirable.
