Firesilk gets its name from the vivid red-orange threads used in the warp of the loom. Each movement of the fabric brings out shifting shades of red that resemble flames flickering against the dominant color of the fabric. The material is always cut on the bias to emphasize the changing colors. The fabric is typically described as follows:
Red silk threads are used in the warp of the fabric, making the item appear to shimmer with red fire as the light catches it.
That description (or something that captures the same spirit) must be used in the look of an item with firesilk.
Firesilk should be used as a full fabric and not threads for embroidery.
