Chiffon can be used alone in making the design of the dress, skirt, or blouse that you want. However, in this case, you will need the design to be composed of more than one layer of chiffon because it’s a transparent fabric. You can overcome this problem by mixing the Chiffon with other fabrics like linen, satin, or cotton to make a lining under the Chiffon.

Al-Ammari Textiles provides Crepe fabrics in many colours and patterns at reasonable prices and in reliable and very durable materials.

The Best Crepe Fabrics

Crepe Georgette

This type of fabric can give you a calm and elegant look with your choice of the colour that suits your skin. It’s easily cleaned and withstands frequent washing.

Chiffon Crepe

One of the most widely used crepe fabrics in designing various women's models, such as blouses, dresses, and veils. It’s preferred by many veiled women because of it’s available in many colours and shapes to meet all needs. At the same time, it’s light on the head, especially in the summer with high temperatures.

Jacquard Crepe

It’s the preferred type of crepe fabric for every Arab woman who loves abayas. Abayas, especially the black ones made of jacquard crepe, are among the most famous Arab models that are widely available in the market. They’re considered practical and modest options.

One of the most important features of jacquard crepe is that it’s durable, strong, untransparent.

Crepe de Chine

It’s a lightweight fabric, usually made of silk, without a pronounced crepe finish. It tends to have a smooth, pebbled, matte finish and is used to make luxury garments and evening wear.

Features of Crepe Fabric

-         It’s flexible and durable. It’s made of fibres made from silk or wool according to the type of crepe itself. Although most crepe fabric types are somewhat heavy and durable, this doesn’t negate the elasticity of the fabric and its softness on the skin.

-         Whatever type of design you want to have whether it is a skirt, blouse, pants, abaya, or even an evening dress,  crepe fabric will do the job perfectly and will be suitable for any design you want.

-         You can make many designs that last a long time without being worn or damaged due to the quality of the fabric. Crepe is distinguished by its strength and durability, which makes it withstand different methods of care for clothes like washing, ironing, drying and even dyeing.

-         It’s quite stretchy, which makes it suitable for all sizes. Many women when they want to buy clothes, especially evening dresses, are faced with the obstacle of finding the right size, as some fabrics are used to make dresses with specific sizes.

-         Crepe fabric combines two very important characteristics that make it one of the most preferred materials for hijabs, which are durability and flexibility. The fabric is easy to wrap and doesn’t require heavy fixation or wearing a cotton veil as a lining underneath, unlike the silk veil that requires a great effort to be fixed on the head.

-         It’s used in making loose-fitting Gulf abayas.

-         It’s used in making blazers for daily routines and occasions.
