Will you fall in love with the lightness of Silk Pongee, Georgette’s grainy texture, or Satin’s splendour?

Silk comes in a variety of types, with each having its unique qualities. Here, we describe the varieties we use in our manufacturing:

  • The silk we have in mind when we think of ‘traditional’ silk, also known as silk satin
  • The front of the fabric is in a shimmery satin weave
  • The back of the fabric is a flattened crêpe

Benefits of Charmeuse (Silk Satin)

  • Charmeuse has more drape than crêpe de chine and works well for scarves
  • A light, matt fabric made from fine twisted yarns, spaced out to make the fabric transparent
  • Dimension is added to garments by the creation of billows of fabric

Benefits of Chiffon

  • Chiffon is very lightweight making it ideal for scarves
  • A lightweight fabric made by fibers, where part of them are twisted clockwise and others in a counter-clockwise direction. These fibers are then woven in a plain-weave fabric
  • The twisted fibers give crêpe its distinctive ‘pebbly’ look and feel
  • Comes in many different varieties – crêpe de Chine, Moroccan crêpe and crêpe georgette

Benefits of Crêpe de Chine

  • Floaty and soft
  • Fine, lightweight, plain weave fabric
  • Grainy texture and sheer feel
  • Less lustrous and heavier than chiffon
  • Named after French dressmaker Georgette de la Plante

Benefits of Georgette

  • Doesn’t hold creases
  • Drapes beautifully
