What kind of material is chiffon?

Our silk chiffon is a plain weave, lightweight, sheer fabric woven from the finest silk yarn available, called hair silk. Known for its soft, graceful drape and crepe-like texture, silk chiffon adds an ethereal quality to any garment. The fabric’s slight transparency and matte finish make it incredibly popular in the creation of layered dresses and blouses, offering depth and richness to the designs. Silk chiffon’s unique interplay of lightness and fluidity allows it to drape beautifully, creating a silhouette that is both flattering and enchanting.

For which garments is chiffon fabric suitable?

Chiffon is a versatile material that can be used to create a range of different looks.

Sheer, slightly undulating, matte, soft, vaporous and ethereal, chiffon conveys delicate beauty and is perfect for making blouses, multi-layered evening dresses, bridal gowns and event dresses with fluid lines. It also makes an excellent fabric to use as a top layer above an opaque fabric, as ruffles, sheer insets or draped extensions.

Color and Print Options

Our silk chiffon fabric is available in a rich palette of over fifty colors, ensuring that you can find the perfect shade to complement any design concept or color scheme. From vibrant hues that make a bold statement to classic neutrals that exude understated elegance, our extensive color range caters to all tastes and occasions. Additionally, our limited-edition prints provide an opportunity for designers to create truly unique and memorable pieces that stand out in any collection.

To touch our fabrics and see the different colours, you can order our Sample Sets (only available for plain fabrics in continuous stock).

What is the difference between chiffon and georgette?

Silk chiffon is very close in appearance to georgette, but is slightly lighter and softer, has a better sheer and sheen and a better drape, in terms of layers and volume. Silk georgette is more durable and a bit easier to work with.

Draping qualities of silk chiffon material

One of the standout qualities of silk chiffon is its exceptional drape. This fabric cascades softly, clinging gently to the body in a way that feels as natural as a second skin, yet it moves with an elegant, floating grace. The fluid nature of silk chiffon makes it ideal for full-length gowns and airy blouses that require a fabric capable of expressing movement and delicacy. Its ability to form delicate folds and subtle gathers enhances the feminine allure of wedding dresses and evening wear, making it a favored choice among designers.
