Raph,

I have sent you an email with attachment.

However, today 90 cm is as wide as good silk is made. I cannot give you much hope for getting silk made in the last decades that wide. Wider silks today are made by sewing two or more pieces of silk together.

I can get up to 56" with no seams in 8 Momme.

Drop me a line. I did some 15' x 15' silk about two years ago.

Raph,

Richard is right that you can get 8 momme silk lining. Be sure that either both sides are acceptable to you or that only one side matters. It is different from the 5 momme China silk used today in magic props. It does have the advantage of being hemmed in the USA with home sewing machines. (They will not be the 2mm hems. For flags, etc. where cargo space is unimportant that may not be a factor. If cargo space is not a factor, Nylon will be cheaper and anyone can sew it. It will not flow like silk but may still fool the audience.)
