Shantung: Shantung is a silk fabric with a rough finish, originally imported from Shantung (now Shandung - literally mountain east) China. Shantung sometimes refers to the finish alone for rayon of cotton fabric.
It was a little cold for the shantung two-piece costume I had acquired from the famous actress Oona Sheehan while working on an assignment for her, but I was prepared to shiver a little to make sure I looked right.
