Black Italian Ponte Di Roma – 1/2 yard


The most luxurious ponte I’ve ever come across, this Italian-made fabric may turn me into a leggings-as-pants gal yet.

This Italian ponte:

-is deliciously smooth and high-quality

-has excellent stretch recovery (with that prized audible ‘snap’ when you stretch and release)

-is a deep, deep, deeeep black


  • Colour: Black
  • Tone: Neutral
  • Fabric Content: Rayon/Nylon/Lycra with excellent recovery
  • Stretch percentage: 50% widthwise and lengthwise stretch
  • Opacity: Completely opaque
  • Drape: Weighty and fluid
  • Weight: Mediumweight
  • Width: 60”
  • Source: Italian-made deadstock, sourced from a NY fashion designer
  • Care:  Prewash on warm and tumble dry medium. Continue to wash on cool and hang to dry to protect the lycra!

*We recommend taking a screenshot of this page to capture the care instructions, as listings often disappear when fabric goes out of stock!

Sustainability: Deadstock is high-quality fabric that went unused by the initial designer, fabric store or mill  who ordered it – be it a big-name fashion brand, fabric mill or film & TV set. (Kind of like browsing the fashion industry's fabric stash.) Buying deadstock supports a circular textile economy, avoids net new production of harmful fibres and dyes & diverts high-quality textiles away from landfills. Pretty cool!

Pattern suggestions: 

  • Style Arc Rita Ponte Skirt (0.75 > 1.75 yards)
