The last two years I have been collecting quite a bit of vintage clothing. Ive come across a type of lining in both trousers and coats that appears to be silk, but with quite an interesting weave. It is woven such that a self stripe runs (almost) perpendicular to the bias. A picture tells a thousand words:
(And yes, it has since been re-attached to the fly in a neater fashion.)

Does anyone know a name for it? And is it even still made?

i presume it's a tafita linning, much rich than an ordinary linning ,best suitable for linning cloths ,but gives it much weight when completed.Best linning for cloths but very difficut to work with

My guess would be silk faille and if I'm right it is still made. Faille is glossy, ribbed and has a very soft hand and excellent drape. It's can be a bit heavy, though. These days it's more often made from cotton, rayon or polyester, but it is still available in silk.

yes, this weave with the wide ribbing tends to be heavy, and is out of favour for this reason. You should look under the category of silk cloth for ladieswear if you want to find something like this. That said, Harrison's LED offer a black silk lining that is a faille, but the ribbing is not as wide

I was sure that I'd seen it somewhere (besides on old clothing) and found this today:

I guess it is Silk Habotai Fabric or Silk Taffeta Fabric, these two kinds of Fabric for lining commonly used in high-end clothing.
