 1. The name "Chiffon" originates from the English Chiffon's meaning meaning light and transparent fabrics. It is a spinning product in silk products. The fabric is light, thin, transparent, soft and elegant. Chiffon is a kind of silk fabric made of strong quilting and weaving. The scientific name of chiffon is called "georgette", and georgette is also known as Qiaoqi. The warp and weft yarns are made of S and Z twisted yarns in two different directions, arranged in ZS and 2Z phases and interlaced in plain weave. The weft and weft density of the fabric is very small. After refining, the silk fabric shrinks and snaking due to the untwisting effect of the silk yarn, forming a silky surface full of uniform wrinkles and loosely structured georgette yarn.

According to the raw materials used can be divided into silk georgette, rayon georgette, polyester georgette yarn and interwoven georgette and several other. The georgette texture is light and transparent, with soft and elastic feel. The appearance is light and elegant. It has good breathability and drapability. It is elegant and comfortable to wear. The light, heavy, thick, thin, transparent, and shrinkage effects of the georgette yarn mainly depend on the thickness of the thread, the number of twists, the twist, and the weft and weft density. Georgette is suitable for women's dresses, evening dresses, headscarves, lanterns, and crafts. It is a spinning product in silk products. The fabric is light, thin, transparent, soft and elegant. The name is from the French CHIFFE transliteration, meaning light and transparent fabric.

2. According to the raw materials used, it can be divided into several types: silk chiffon, artificial chiffon and polyester silk chiffon. The same is the chiffon fabric. The difference in the fabrics woven by different materials is also great, and the texture and feel are different. Far, so the price difference is also very large. According to other classifications, chiffon is classified into silk chiffon and silk chiffon. Simulation silk chiffon general composition is 100% polyester (chemical fiber type)

Texture characteristics: thin, soft, natural drape, good skin feel, but the simulation silk chiffon is a purified fiber, it is not easy to decolorize, it is not afraid of exposure, easy to handle (machine washable), firmness Better. The silk chiffon composition is 100% mulberry silk (natural fiber), has the appearance of the above features, and in addition to long-term wear on the human skin is very good, cool breathable, strong moisture absorption, these are artificial silk chiffon Less than that.

However, some aspects of silk chiffon can not keep up with artificial silk chiffon, for example: after washing more easily become lighter and lighter, can not be exposed to the sun (will be yellow), take care of it is very troublesome (need to hand wash), solidity is not good ( Easy to stretch yarn, easy to tear at the seam).

The chiffon fabric warp and weft yarns are made of polyester FDY100D twisted, and then steamed and baked with a special sizing process. The fabric structure adopts plain weave variations. In addition to the advantages of softness, smoothness, breathability, and easy washing, the product is more comfortable and drape. Fabrics can be dyed, printed, embroidered, stamped, creased, etc. The listed fabrics are dominated by a variety of light-colored and light-colored shades that are both light and elegant.
