What is Organza Fabric? 

Organza is a lightweight, plain-woven fabric that is highly transparent and breathable. Other distinguishing properties are:

  • Smooth
  • Sheer
  • Wiry
  • Crisp
  • Slippery. 

Organza is distinguished from other fabrics by the tiny spaces throughout the material. The more holes per inch of the fabric, the higher the quality. 

The fabric was originally made using silk fibers but now it is also made using natural and synthetic fibers. 

History of Organza Fabric

Organza fabric originated in China where silk was first produced. The fabric was traded along the Silk Road, which were trade routes that connected China to Europe. This allowed it to spread across the world and to become popular. 

The name organza is derived from the word organzine, which is the process that was used to make silk thread from fibers.
