Organdy Fabric

What is Organdy ? 

  • Organdy is a sheer, lightweight, crisp , cotton fabric made with an open, plain weave and very fine, tightly twisted single yarns.
  • It has the crisp feel because of two reasons; either it is starched and calendared or it is finished with a chemical resin (a special acid and lye treatment together with heat application) . 


  • Organdy’s history began in Europe during the Middle Ages when plain-woven clothes became more fashionable.
  • Back then, linen was the most commonly used plant-derived fabric material, with mutton wool being the most renowned animal-derived rival.
  • In this case, the first forms of organdy, such as lawn cloth and batiste fabric, were produced from linen.
  • However, experts believe that those fabrics came from different areas.
  • In fact, organdy originated in Switzerland, while lawn fabric and batiste originated in France.
  • Although historical records on the beginnings of organdy are scarce, there is evidence to support that early Swiss organdy makers developed this fabric.
  • This material was created to be a lighter, finer alternative to traditional linen-based fabrics.
