What is the meaning of gossamer? Gossamer is a gauze or silk fabric of the very finest texture. GOSSAMER is also a vintage shop inspired by ethereal materials started in 2013 and has quickly grown to worldwide recognition. We go all over the States sourcing garments based on design, fabric, rarity, and lasting style. Most items, with the exception of very delicate pieces, are hand-washed and cleaned. Major flaws are repaired, steamed for photographs, and finally beautifully packaged to our customer. We do the heavy work and look for the best items so you won't have to.
