What is organza fabric?
The term “organza” is related to the term “organza,” which in modern times refers to any type of silk thread made using a simple rotary spinning process. Like most other silk garments, organza originated in areas along the Silk Road, an ancient network of trade routes that stretched from China to Europe. Organza is a lightweight plain weave. This type of fabric is sheer, which means it is woven at a very low density, resulting in a transparent and relatively thin fabric. Because of its transparency and high breathability, organza fabrics are often used to make garments that cover thicker garments and are sometimes used to make various types of home textiles.
In the past, organza was made entirely of silk. However, the advent of fully synthetic fabrics such as polyester and nylon has made it possible to manufacture such textiles from other base materials.
Due to its incredibly delicate nature, organza fabric cannot be washed in a washing machine. Instead, it's necessary to wash this type of fabric by hand, and many consumers prefer to have their organza dry cleaned.
Like silk fabric, organza has a soft, smooth texture and is not slippery like synthetic fibers. It has characteristics like no other fabric, uniquely combining properties such as drape qualities, dry yet lustrous feel, absorbs moisture well, is hypoallergenic making it ideal for people with allergies and easily irritated skin. It is not very elastic but has a great resistance, and if well cared for, it can be very durable.
