Some people often confuse chiffon and georgette. Some even say that the scientific name of chiffon is georgette. The two are the same thing. In fact, they are the same thing. This statement is incorrect
So what are the essential differences between chiffon and georgette?
A chiffon is a plain weave, and the warp and weft density of the fabric is very small
Qiao Others are twisted
Both are light and transparent in texture, smooth and soft to the touch, and very breathable. Good, the flexibility is good
Two differences between them
The drape of chiffon is not as good as Georgette. Because Georgette is twisted, Georgette has a higher drape and is more wear-resistant. It does not pill, shrink or deform, and is not easy to split. , and it feels good, with pure color and colorful printing patterns. It is very popular among fashionable women in the market and is not easy to wrinkle.
Chiffon has a smooth warp and weft and good breathability. It has been reduced in weight during the dyeing process, so its fabric feels particularly soft and elegant. It has the characteristics of free shrinkage and is easy to shrink, so Shrinking is required before production
Three chiffon fabrics are divided into: silk chiffon, simulated silk chiffon
(1) Silk chiffon
Silk chiffon is as the name suggests , is made of 100% mulberry silk, so it feels soft and smooth, breathable and cool, and has a pearl luster
It is troublesome to maintain. It is easy to fade and wrinkle. It is not very strong and easy to slip. It cannot be left in the sun. Do not expose it to the sun or put it under the light. You are afraid of being exposed to the light. It will turn yellow, become brittle, and tear easily
(2) Simulated silk chiffon
Simulated silk chiffon is made of polyester, viscose and other chemical fiber filaments. Success
Its texture is relatively light and transparent, soft and smooth, the color is relatively bright, not elastic, not easy to wrinkle, the luster is a bit dazzling, does not fade, is relatively wear-resistant, is not afraid of sunlight exposure, and is easy to take care of
Poor moisture absorption and breathability, it is made of Clothes are sweaty and hot to wear in summer. Chiffon clothes cannot be hung for a long time to avoid sagging and deformation. If there is local water staining, they need to be washed and ironed as a whole. If chiffon clothes are stored for a long time, it is best to put them in a fabric bag. It can achieve the purpose of breathability and dustproof
Four georgette is divided into silk Georgette, rayon georgette, polyester georgette and interwoven georgette can also be divided into 01 georgette 02 georgette
So what is What about 01 and 02 Georgette? Many silk fabrics have numbers. Different numbers represent different yarn count densities, and the weight per gram is also different. 01 Georgette is an 8 mmi, and 02 Georgette is a 10 mmi. , that is to say, the weight of 02 Georgette per gram is greater than that of 01 Georgette per gram
Which of the two belongs to Good quality? Georgette is slightly higher-end than chiffon. Why do you say this?
Because we all know that authentic snow Chiffon and georgette are a kind of silk. Its raw material is silk. With the development of modern technology, imitation technology has become more and more advanced. Now there are many cheap chiffon on the market, which are pure through modern technology. Made of chemical fiber, it belongs to polyester fabric, which is a kind of chemical fiber fabric. This phenomenon gives people the illusion that chiffon is a very poor quality fabric. The real situation is that the quality of silk chiffon is still very good. , and Qiao Qi each have their own strengths, the key depends on personal hobbies or what they are used for
