Georgette is a synthetic fabric made up from either polyester or nylon. Originally when Georgette was invented by a French dressmaker early 20th century it was produced with silk yarns. As materials and processes have developed there is a cheaper and easily accessible Georgette which is made up of a synthetic yarn.
Georgette is a lightweight slightly textured crepe fabric with a dull finish compared to other crepe materials like chiffon. The crinkles in the fabric are made by alternating yarns in the weft and warp creating this texture when it is relaxed. Double Georgette is a heavier weight compared to the other types of Georgette available.
