Some people often confuse chiffon and georgette. Some even say that the scientific name of chiffon is georgette, and the two are the same thing. In fact, this statement is wrong
So what are the essential differences between chiffon and georgette? What’s the difference?
A chiffon is a plain weave, and the warp and weft density of the fabric is very small
Qiao and others are more twisted
Both are light and transparent in texture, smooth and soft to the touch, and have good breathability. Flexibility is also good
II Their differences
The drape of chiffon is not as good as that of Georgette. Because Georgette is twisted, Georgette has higher drape and is more wear-resistant. It does not pill, shrink or deform, and is not easy to split. It also feels good, has 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. , with an elegant feel, the ability to shrink freely, and is easy to shrink, so it needs to be shrunk before production
Three chiffon fabrics are divided into: silk chiffon, simulated silk chiffon
(1 ) Silk chiffon
Silk chiffon, as the name suggests, is woven from 100% mulberry silk, so it feels soft and smooth, breathable and cool, and has a pearl luster
It is more troublesome to maintain, easy to fade and wrinkle, not very strong, prone to slipping, cannot be put away Do not expose 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
Silk chiffon is made of polyester, viscose and other chemicals Woven from fiber filaments
Its texture is relatively light and transparent, soft, elegant and smooth, and its color is relatively bright. It has no elasticity, does not wrinkle easily, the gloss is a bit dazzling, does not fade, is relatively wear-resistant, is not afraid of sunlight exposure, and is easy to take care of
It has poor moisture absorption and breathability. Clothes made of it will feel sweaty and hot when worn in summer. Chiffon clothes cannot be hung for a long time to avoid loosening and deformation of the clothes. If there is local water staining, it needs to be washed and ironed as a whole. When storing chiffon clothes for a long time, it is best to put them in fabric bags to achieve the purpose of breathability and dustproof
Four Georgette is divided into silk georgette, rayon georgette, polyester georgette and interwoven georgette, and can also be divided into 01 georgette 02 georgette
So what are 01 and 02 George? Many silk fabrics have numbers. Different numbers represent different yarn count densities, and the weight per gram is also different. 01 Georgette is an 8mm meter, and 02 Georgette is an 8mm meter.It is 10 mmi, which means that the weight of 02 Georgettes per gram is greater than 01 Georgettes per gram
Which of the two has better quality? Georgette is slightly more high-end than chiffon. Why do you say this?
Because we all know that authentic chiffon and Georgette are a kind of silk, and its raw materials are silk. With the development of modern technology, imitation Technology is becoming more and more advanced. Nowadays, there are many cheap chiffons on the market. They are made of pure fiber through modern technology. They are polyester fabrics, which are also chemical fiber fabrics. This phenomenon creates an illusion for people. Chiffon is a fabric of very poor quality. The real situation is that the quality of silk chiffon is still very good, and Georgette has its own advantages. The key depends on personal preferences or what it is used for.
