Silk Organza

Silk Organza Fabric 8152 by James Hare is used by tailors, either over or under other silk fabrics, giving body to Bridal Gowns, Prom Dresses, Ball Gowns and Evening Wear. In the interiors market it is used to great effect in bedrooms and as sheer curtains. Wedding Table Gift bags are also made for sweets such as sugared almonds. Silk Organza is woven by a number of mills along the Yangtze River and the Zhejiang Provence in China. A coarser silk organza is woven in Bangalore, India and Deluxe Silk Organza is woven in France and Italy.

A sumptuous light-weight and transparent sheer silk with an elegant finish and a crisp hand. Amongst the most popular colours is Ivory Silk Organza although the range is also available in a stunning pastels. Princess Margaret at her wedding to Lord Snowdon wore a Wedding Dress which used 30m of white Silk Organza.

Being a woven fabric it’s more susceptible to fraying. One option is to use pinking scissors to cut it but this is not always suitable for the garment you are making. A liquid seam sealant such as Prym Frat Check could also be applied lightly to all cut edges and left to dry for at least 6 hours – this should be done in a well ventilated room; it is also highly flammable. You can coordinate this beautifully with our standard weight Silk Crepe Backed Satin or our stunning Silk Chiffon Collection.
