Our current selection of veils available online are mainly silk. We do have a few chiffon and polyester/silk mix veils in the Souk, but these are one-offs obtained from our supplier in Istanbul when we visit (please feel free to enquire if you are looking for something specific). We also stock some lovely georgette veils in a variety of colours, which are ideal for outdoor performances as they are slightly heavier and more wind-resistant.
Veils come in various fabrics including chiffon, georgette, organza and silk, and they all behave differently, so it really does come down to what you like and feel comfortable with. If you can, have a go with veils in different fabrics before you invest in one, so you can see what feels best for you. For taller dancers, it may be best to go for a rectangular veil as these tend to be larger. Standard sizes vary from between 2½ to 3 yards in length and they are generally about 45” inches wide. If you are 5’4” or under, you might want to consider a half-circle veil to begin with (as there will be no draping corners to trip over).
