How to choose and where to buy chiffon?

What kind of fabric is chiffon?

Initially, chiffon was made exclusively from silk threads and was considered an elite fabric. At the beginning of the 20th century, manufacturers began to use mixed materials in chiffon production. This way of production is still ongoing. Polyester is added to silk to make the material more dense and wear-resistant without harming the brightness of natural silk.

In addition to silk, various synthetic threads are used, primarily polyamide and polyester. Natural fabrics (for example, cotton) can be used as well. Its combination with artificial fibers gives the material unique properties, such as strength, softness, hygroscopicity and crease-resistance.

Excellence of Italian chiffon

Italian factories produce materials that optimally combine natural and artificial fibers. It is very comfortable to wear, does not wrinkle and does not constrain movements. The fabric saves colour brightness, so it is suitable for creation of the most contrasting outfits.

The material is hypoallergenic and breathable. Despite its light weight, it is strong and durable. In addition, it has antibacterial properties, like all silk-based fabrics.

  • Satin chiffon is a rather dense fabric combining the advantages of satin and chiffon.
  • Shot silk is a fabric which is made of combination of colorful silk threads.
  • Jacquard is a non-transparent, printed, non-wrinkled material.
