Nat, if your looking for quality don't buy the one
from uday. I own a set, they're fine for me because of the way
i vanish the "silk". But if you intend to compress them they're
Not for you.

I Don't know what they are but they're not silk.
They are durable though.

What a fantastic routine 20th Century Silks really is!

I purchased my very first set somewhere between 1968 and 1970 and they were from Tannens. Great quality made set and the silks were just a touch thick (not made from 100% silk) but held up nicely and a great set.

Since then, I have purchased a few other sets including one from Rice, one from Royal, and one from Tenyo. The Rice and Royal sets are excellent!

Anyway, a good presentation of this effect is a thing of beauty. I always preferred using a really nice glass to hold the silks. Method of silk vanish can be many things as long as it is done in a clean fashion.

By the way, if I had the opportunity to perform it now, I would use the Royal set. All 3 brands are no longer available. There are lots of others but they all use a sold color center silk and I prefer one with a design.

Thanks for your comments.
Coincidence: my old set is from Tannen's as well, probably purchased in the mid-'60s, pocket type with a 12-inch silk in the middle and one to vanish...I have used it for years and with wear and tear, I looking for another (or perhaps I should make one up), I like the small center silk because I can use a thumb tip for the vanish - quick and easy! My routine uses a top hat to hold the two silks by a volunteer - "who does the magic!"
Regarding the brands, I think SEO has the Tenyo your preference to use a design silk. Take Care!
