Tulle Talk: English vs. Italian

Posted by Vaida Lileikiene on

One of the most common questions clients ask me is: what's the difference between English tulle and Italian tulle? Here's a quick breakdown:

  1. Hole Size: English tulle has larger hexagon-shaped holes compared to the smaller ones in Italian tulle.
  2. Wrinkle Resistance: English tulle wrinkles less and is easy to straighten by hanging it on a hanger. Italian tulle, on the other hand, tends to crumple a bit more.
  3. Visual Comparison: Check out these photos! They both show the same style veil, called a drop veil, which is famous for that lift-and-kiss moment.

The Veiled Virgin is a Carrara marble statue of the bust of a veiled Virgin Mary, carved by Italian sculptor Giovanni Strazza in Rome in the early 1850s. 
It is much like how an English tulle veil drapes.

Are you still uncertain about choosing tulle? Want to feel the difference yourself? I recommend getting some tulle samples.
