Another fabric named after its curing process, camlet is a heavy, waterproof silk best suited for containers and outerwear. Camlet is not dyed in the traditional sense. Instead, dried pigments are added to the waterproofing solution during the curing processes. As a result of this, camlet is incredibly resistant to fading and was traditionally only created in the most vivid and brilliant of hues. Although deep, rich tones are now sometimes produced as well, white and other pale shades of camlet remain almost unheard of.
