Can I Lighten Custom Dupioni Silk Drapes?

Good Questions

Q: I recently had some London shades custom made for my living room and dining room. I found a picture in a magazine and fell in love with them. I bought dupioni silk, picked the color from a tiny swatch, had the shades made, and am unhappy with the color. The silk is a champagne/creme/yellow color. I would like to make them a whiter color. Is it possible to bleach/lighten them somehow?
