What kind of fabric is organza: features and uses

The organza fabric has ancient origins, dating back to the fourteenth century in Asia, where it was initially produced only in silk. Over the centuries, the production of organza has spread all over the world and the fabric has started to be produced with other fibers, such as cotton and synthetic fibers. Let’s discover features and uses of organza fabric.

What is meant by the term organza and how to recognize it

The term organza refers to a type of light and transparent fabric, composed of threads woven together to form a transparent texture. Organza can be produced with different fibers, including silk, cotton and synthetic fibers. This fabric is often used for creating evening dresses and accessories such as scarves and stoles, as well as for decorations for weddings and other special occasions. Organza is also suitable for decorations of various types, designs, embroidery and lace for a more elegant and sophisticated look.

To recognize organza we must evaluate these five elements: transparency, texture, lucidity, elasticity and structure. Being a transparent fabric, you should be able to see through it when it is held against the light. The texture should be crisp and stiff, although there are softer and smoother variations. The organza also has a shiny appearance, a feature even more evident in that of silk. Organza is not an elastic fabric, so if the fabric in your hand stretches and widens, it’s not organza. Finally, the organza has a very fine and regular texture.


How to use organza and how many types of organza exist

This is also a great choice for gift wrapping, especially if you want to give the gift a stylish and sophisticated touch. You can create gift bags, ribbons, bows and decorations for packages.

How to stretch the organza

To iron organza, you need to pay close attention as it is a delicate tissue that can get damaged easily. Here are some tips on how to iron organza:

Adjust the iron temperature on the “low temperature” or “silk” mode. This way, the fabric will not burn or melt during the ironing process.

Use a protective cloth. Before you start ironing organza, place a clean, lightweight cotton cloth on the fabric to protect it during the ironing process. Alternatively, you can also use a similar silk or organza fabric.

Iron gently. Place the iron on the surface of the organza and press gently without putting too much pressure. Begin ironing from the edge of the fabric and move the iron gently towards the center. Do not pass the iron repeatedly over the same area to avoid damaging the fabric.

Iron on the wrong side. If possible, turn the fabric over and iron it gently using the same process.

Avoid vaporization. Do not use vaporization when ironing organza as moisture may cause staining or discoloration.

Dry thoroughly. After ironing the organza, let it dry completely in the open air before storing.
