              The amazing texture, variety and timeless shine of Chiffon sarees have made them a favourite amongst Indian women and saree enthusiasts. With their unique qualities and significant history, these ethereal clothes have a special position in the fashion industry. A tradition of elegance, beauty, glitz, and royalty is associated with this saree. The translucent look of chiffon is attributed to its lightweight, mesh-like weave. 

              The word Chiffon originates from the French word “Chiffie”, meaning cloth. It is made from silk, cotton or synthetic fibres. It was made with only silk, up until 1938, post which nylon chiffon entered the market.

              History of Chiffon Saree

              Chiffon was initially made from silk and was first produced in France. It is expensive and was initially only available for women from rich families. Eventually, due to its demand, nylon started being used in the manufacturing of Chiffon. In 1958, polyester came into the picture and was used in the production of Chiffon. This was a revolution in its production and gained huge popularity due to its durability and inexpensive pricing. These found their space in the Indian market in the late 20th century, becoming a symbol of femininity.

              How Are Chiffon Sarees Made?

              The process of making chiffon is unique. It entails interweaving two types of yarns, namely the S-twist and Z-twist yarns. One yarn is arranged in S-shaped curves, and the other is twisted in a Z-shape. The yarns are twisted tighter than yarns from other fabrics. They are twisted both clockwise and anticlockwise and then bound together in a plain weave. One weft thread is alternately run above and below one warp thread. This weaving creates the chiffon fabric's distinctive slightly rough texture. Since it is a slow and laborious process, it is usually made using hands, or with machines at slow setting.  

              Taking Care of Chiffon Sarees

              • Machine wash may damage its texture and it should be washed by hand to preserve it.
              • Use mild detergent for washing.
              • It should be soaked in cold water for around 25-30 minutes before washing.
              • Keep it in a shaded area as exposure to direct sunlight may fade its colour.
              • Avoid using any bleach or chemicals.
