What is Organza Fabric?

Are you looking for a fabric that instantly adds a touch of delicate luxury to your party? Organza fabric material might just be the decor material for you.

Organza is a lightweight and sheer fabric made out of plain weave. It has a nearly-transparent look with a slight sheen.

Woven loosely, this material is highly breathable and has a soft flow yet crisp texture. It’s a staple in every event decorator’s kit to add a sense of elegance to any space. It is often used to layer over other types of decorative cloth.

In this blog, we guide you through the basics of organza fabric and how to decorate your party with this versatile fabric.

What is Organza Fabric Made of?

Different types of organza fabric depend on the fibers used to make it. Traditionally, people made organza fabric from silk, which gave it a sheer appearance and a soft flow. Synthetic fabric has enabled the production of organza from polyester fibers or nylon.

Silk organza fabric has all the unique qualities that organza is known for: sheer, lightweight, and with a crisp texture. Organza made out of these synthetic fibers have the same sheer look but differ slightly in how softly they drape.

Because traditional silk organza can only be made organically, it can be pricier compared to organza made of synthetic fiber. However, it also presents as more durable, lasting longer when cared for properly.

Maintenance and Care

Organza is a delicate fabric so you will want to use the right maintenance and care to make it last long. Opt to hand wash organza versus using a washing machine. This way you can make sure it doesn’t snag or fray in your washing machine. You can also opt to have your fabric dry-cleaned.

When hand washing organza, use cold water and mild detergent to minimize damage. Avoid using bleach or any harsh cleaning agents.

After hand washing, rinse thoroughly and lay on a clean flat surface or hang to dry. Avoid wringing the cloth to prevent wrinkles. Hang to dry in a slightly shaded area to avoid damage from direct sunlight and intense heat.
