Unleash your creativity with our exquisite collection of pure silk crepe de chine, the perfect fabric choice for designing sophisticated dresses, elegant blouses, delicate lingerie, flowing skirts, and sleek pants. Available in over forty plain colors and a wide range of prints, our silk crepe de chine offers endless possibilities to fulfill any designer’s vision with its blend of classic beauty and functional versatility.

What kind of material is crêpe de chine?

Silk crepe de chine is a luxurious fabric known for its subtle luster and beautiful drape. Characterized by its fine, slightly crinkled texture and by the contrast between the shiny silk of the warp and the matte finish of the weft, this fabric is created using tightly twisted yarns, spun alternating 2S-2Z, which are woven in a plain weave.
The crinkles in crepe de chine are less pronounced than in other crepe fabrics, which gives it a smoother finish but with enough texture to add visual interest and depth to the fabric. This lightweight silk is renowned not only for its soft handle and exquisite feel but also for its relative durability compared to other silks, making it a popular choice for both everyday and high-end fashion.

It is an elegant, tasteful and versatile fabric and is one of the easiest silks to sew – it doesn’t shift so much thanks to its friction and texture.

For which garments is crêpe de chine suitable?

Perfect for daywear as well as evening-wear, every designer loves and uses it. Particularly enhances draped dresses.
The adaptability of silk crepe de chine makes it a favored choice for a wide range of apparel. It is as suitable for the flowing lines of a romantic evening dress as it is for the structured simplicity of tailored pants. The fabric’s slight give and soft texture also make it a preferred material for lingerie and other close-fitting garments, where comfort and appearance are equally important.

The lightweight nature of crepe de chine allows it to sit comfortably against the skin, ensuring garments are not only stunning to look at but also comfortable to wear. Whether it’s the gentle flutter of a blouse sleeve or the sleek drop of a dress, silk crepe de chine handles it with ease, enhancing the garment’s overall elegance.

Color and Print Variety

Our silk crepe de chine is available in an extensive palette of over forty colors, ranging from soft pastels to vibrant hues, along with numerous pattern options that include floral designs, abstract prints, and classic motifs. This variety allows designers and fabric enthusiasts to select precisely the right shade and style to bring their fashion projects to life, be it a bold statement piece or a subtle, understated garment.

To see in-person the colours and texture, you can order a sample set (available only for plain colours in continuous supply).

Our silk crêpe de chine is also available in a stretch version.

Drapability and Texture

Silk Crepe de Chine possesses a supple and fluid drape, allowing it to harmoniously adapt to the body’s contours and create soft, natural folds. When used in garment construction, it drapes lightly, forming delicate folds that add movement and fluidity to the silhouette.

The drape of Silk Crepe de Chine is often described as elegant, airy, and sensual. It imparts a sophisticated and subtly undulating appearance to clothing, making it ideal for garments that require a natural fluidity. When worn, it gently follows the body’s movements, providing a sense of fluidity and lightness.
