The history of name

The origin of the word "organza" is ambiguous. Thus, there is a version linked to the name of the ancient city in Uzbekistan called Urgench or Urganch in Uzbek. In Europe, the fabric was taken at the end of the 18th century, while a silk factory had been operating in Urgench for a long time. The accent on the last syllable in the city name confirms this version.

There is also another version, which says that the name of this fabric resembles the name of the American firm Lorganza, founded in 1820.

Types of organza

There are several types of Italian organza. These include the following:

  • Chameleon - thanks to the interweaving of multicolored fibers in the base and weft, the fabric is capable of changing color depending on the angle of light incidence.
  • Rainbow - through the smooth transition of strips of colored threads into each other, this kind of organza has a rainbow effect.
  • With spraying - excellent combination of authentic fabric with gold or silver spraying.
  • With the addition of aluminum threads, this type of fiber gives an amazing metallic gleam.
  • Crash - the presented type of organza has a compressed effect.
  • Combined - the material can be simultaneously smooth, stiff, monophonic or variegated. Patterns are printed or etched.
