Wholesale Plisse Fabrics

Plisse Fabric is perfect for casual fashion, daily clothes, and summer wear because of its lightweight, flowy, and soft texture. However, Some plissé garments may require unique cleaning techniques depending on the item. So, you always need to add clothing care label for your customers. It also needs gentle washing and air drying. Since it has pleats, you should remind your customers to put extra attention to preserving a plissé fabric’s distinctive texture.

What is Plisse Fabric?

Plissé fabric is a lightweight cotton fabric treated chemically to create shrinks, leaving it with a puckered or crinkled texture. It can resemble seersucker and is frequently woven with a striped pattern. Because of its textured, puckered nature, it is prone to wrinkles, so it is ideal for more casual use. But, ironing is likely to eliminate the fabric’s intended pucker effect.

Types of Plisse Fabric

Plisse fabric has many types, which are categorized based on its pleats type. Here are a few examples of pleated or folded plisse fabric:

Box Pleats

Box pleats have a single outward-facing type of pleats. Typically, they are folded tightly together and double-layered. It can be made easily by pressing fabrics that are spaced equally together.


These fabrics have very few pleats, made solely to give the cloth some texture and appearance. These pleats are created to achieve a three-dimensional look. 

Inverted Pleats

These are frequently upside-down box pleats, with the folds pointing inward rather than outward as in a box pleat. These are usually used to create splits for shorts and fitted skirts.

Accordion Pleats

One of the most common and eye-catching Plisse fabric pleats is accordion pleats. They consist of both box and inverted pleats and are uniformly spaced.

What is Plisse Fabric Used For?

Since Plisse fabric is lightweight cotton, it is commonly used in lightweight apparel as well, which includes dresses, skirts, blouses, jumpsuits, and underwear. It is also ideal for any swimwear and other summer outfits. 

What are the Raw Materials used For Plisse Fabric?

Plissé fabrics are made up of rayon and acetate, but they are typically composed of plain-weave cotton or polyester/cotton blends.

History & Origin of Plisse Fabric

The term “plisse” alludes to the rumpled appearance of the plisse cloth and is derived from the French words “fold” or “pleat.” Sometimes, plisse fabric is also called crinkle crepe, crepon, blister crepe, and blister cloth. Even though various textiles can be manually folded or pleated to get the desired effect, the term “plisse” is typically used to describe crinkly and chemically treated fabric. Its folds naturally appear asymmetrical but are often parallel.

The first people to wear plisse and other pleated fabrics were Ancient Egyptian royals and nobles. They frequently wore them as a sign of their riches and authority. Also, Plisse garments spread to Ancient Europe and quickly became popular within aristocratic circles. In fact, Queen Elizabeth is just one of the well-known people who have worn one.

How Much is Plisse Fabric? (per yard)

Plisse fabric cost ranges from $5 to $15 per yard, depending on its type, color, prints, and designs.
