Dupionni looks similar to silk Shantung but with more intentional slubs in the fiber. It has a crisp, firm hand with lots of linear texture and subtle luster. It dyes and paints brilliant colors but does not lend itself well to the use of gutta owing to the heavy, random slubs. The texture, weight and strength makes it wonderful for nicer pillow covers, wall hangings, jackets, pants, etc. Silk Shantung is a kind Dupionni of silk that is woven in the Shantung Provence of China.
