Our collection of Jusilyn silk wedding veils is the cream of the crop. Jusilyn is a silk blend fabric made to resemble jusi, the gorgeous piña fabric traditionally used to make the Philippines' national costume. Unlike traditional jusi fabric, jusilyn is more opaque and evenly textured, but still has the elegant translucent streaks characteristic of the beloved piña fabric.
We’ve sourced our jusilyn veils from traditional artisans in Luzon, who’ve added delicate floral embroidery and scalloped edging, lending an elevated Filipiniana elegance to your wedding ceremony.
Wondering how this compares to our other unity veils? The Jusilyn silk veil is still delicate and lightweight like the rest, but thicker and more textured. It makes the perfect family heirloom.
We recommend letting your veil air out a few days before your wedding ceremony to allow for the fabric to loosen and folds to smooth out.
The Filipino wedding unity veil (or Couple Veil) is a traditional element of Filipino Catholic weddings. The Veil is draped over the couple's shoulders to represent God's protection (Catholic ceremonies) or the love of friends and family. The Veil symbolizes the couple's togetherness, now facing the world as one.
In traditional Filipino weddings, the Veil Sponsors drape the veil onto the married couple, pinning each end onto either the bride's veil, dress, or suit near or at shoulder height. The Unity Cord is then placed over the Veil as part of the Filipino tradition.
