Organza Sarees – Soft, Sheer And Sensational Fabrics

By Expert Author: menaka poonam

Organza is a sheer fabric that assumes a feel from very smooth to slightly coarse based on how finely it is woven. Having a matte or slightly lacklustre finish, it is dull in appearance and does not reflect light as well as silk or some other fabrics like chiffon.

Organza despite its thin and delicate appearance has good tensile strength. Primarily used in the making of evening dresses, sarees, bridal trousseaus, it also serves well for dress trimmings and inner linings in ready fabrics. Drapes of organza employed as curtains and airy separators for large spaces, are exclusive applications of the fabric.

A great advantage of organza fabrics is its very good affinity to colours and hence one can find a whole range of apparel of pleasing colours and varied shades. The fineness of the fabric allows prints and text to be transferred with the use of a computer and allied equipment onto the fabric directly.

This quality makes it available for graphical images and many other effects to be superimposed on top of a textured background, creating a magical illusory effect. Fraying at the edges of the print could be required a little to smoothen the fabric after printing is done.

Chiffon and Organza are like cousins with similarity in appearance and very little distinguishing features. Both are soft, sheer, machine woven and made from silk or synthetic fibres. But for the discerning eye, the differences are visible. Chiffon is lustrous while organza is comparatively quite dull. As drapes, Chiffon flows more while Organza is stiffer. Organza has utility as an inner layer or insert, provides structural firmness for ready fabrics and also has appearance, while Chiffon has appeal only for its look.

Weaving of Silk organza is still popular in China, whereas in the US and India, apparel and other organza fabric items are woven using nylon and polyester, mainly due to the ease of availability and from an economic point of view. In Italy and France, an extra fine or deluxe silk organza fabric is manufactured.

The balanced plain-weave organza is a fabric woven from thin and continuous filaments of natural fibres as silk, or synthetic fibres as nylon or polyester, or their blends. In plain weave the alignment of warp and weft creates a criss-cross pattern. Each weft thread goes over one warp thread and comes out from under another and so on. The threads of warp and weft are of the same size and the number of threads within a given cross sectional area, too are same. The end-result is generally a checker-board appearance.

Organdy or Organdie is a sheer, crisp fabric made from cotton and has very many similarities to organza which is made from silk. Organdy varies from soft to stiff and uses are almost similar as that of organza.

As with other fabrics, Organza has already secured a place for itself for its light weight apparel of style. It is additionally desirable for its provision of a light atmosphere of slight opulence, through furnishings that create a wonderfully soothing and relaxed setting for one to bask in.
