Silk Organza – Silk organza (€38.00 p.m.)is an elegant semi-translucent stiff silk fabric. It is often an ideal choice if your gown is made with silk organza. Silk organza can be made in several lengths and tiers and is available in 137 cms wide.
Silk Chiffon – Silk chiffon (€34.00 p.m.) is fluid soft flowing non-translucent material made with highly twisted fibers and a soft finish. Silk chiffon is made of 100% silk and has a grainy crepe like texture. One might choose silk chiffon due to personal preference for natural fibers or to match the fabric of a silk chiffon made bridal gown. Chiffon fabric wedding veils are best as single tier veils since the fabric is non-translucent and the fabric is weightier than bridal illusion or traditional tulle based veils. Silk Chiffon is available in 137 cms wide.
