Chiffon is French for “rag,” but this very sheer fabric is the most elegant of rags! Originally silk, chiffon is also now made of polyester, nylon or rayon as well. It is a loose, balanced plain weave with tightly twisted single yarns in both directions. It has a subtle crepe texture, and is as light and thin as can be.
Chiffon is sometimes also used to describe the lightness of a fabric, such as chiffon velvet (a light soft velvet) and chiffon taffeta (a glossy, light, soft taffeta).
