i like to know the adv and dis-adv of poly blend vs silk. for a pen roll, will silk be durable enough to be tossed in bags? also what's the hand-feel is like for each?
out of curiosity, what type of lighting set up did you use? pretty much straight on?

I can't say too much about the durability of either fabric, as I have both fabric types in older patterns, but don't transport them very often. Personally, I can't feel much a difference on the finished product, but on these swatches the silk feels just a tad silkier (smoother to the touch?)... but I also can't tell if that's just something my head is making up since I know there's a difference in material.
Per our photographer, these were shot with a strobe light. And TIL that's a studio thing, not just an unz unz unz thing.
