What Makes it Stand Out


Organza is a transparent fabric this is due to the weaving pattern which makes organza have small holes. 


Due to the tightly twisted yarns before the weaving process the fabric is thin. 


Organza reflects beautifully making it the fine quality of silk.


Because of the treatment of yarns in acid before weaving, the organza is stiffer than any other traditional silk fabric.


The holes in the fabric allow air to pass through making it breathable.

How to Judge the Authenticity 

  • Pure organza fabric can be checked by looking at the material and by listening to the crisp sound when rubbed. 
  • The other way of checking the authenticity is by a burn test. 
  • Take a piece of an organza cloth and burn it. 
  • The burning smell of the organza fabric will be similar to the burning of hair.
