Dupion, or Dupioni, is a plain weave, crisp type of silk fabric using a combination of a fine thread and an uneven thread for weaving. This creates a highly lustrous surface as the unevenness tends to reflect more light. Threads of differing colours are used to weave Dupion silk sarees giving the saree an iridescent look. Many different designs can be woven into the saree like floral patterns, striped patterns or other intrinsic designs.
