Description

Taffeta is the ultimate fabric for special occasions, forming ball gowns and evening wear used frequently by iconic designers like Coco Chanel and Christian Dior. The crisp, shiny fabric, made from silk, polyester, or nylon, creates beautiful silhouettes and is considered an ideal fabric for creating high fashion looks.

Taffeta was first produced in the Middle East in the twelfth century, and the word taffeta comes from the Persian word “taftah” meaning “crisp, woven.”

Characteristics and advantages of taffeta:

  • Crisp. Embroidered Taffeta fabric is crisp and holds it shape well as a result of the tightly twisted yarns woven together in a plain weave fashion.
  • Sheen. Taffeta has a lustrous shine that is unique to the fabric and comes from the innate qualities of silk or polyester.
  • Smooth. Taffeta fabric also has a smooth surface, and piece-dyed taffeta is especially soft.
  • Sound. Taffeta, especially yarn-dyed taffeta, makes a rustling sound called “scroop” (combination of scrape and woop) when it rubs together.
  • Luxurious. Taffeta is a shimmery, crisp fabric has created many iconic looks. The shimmer comes from the type of fiber used to make taffeta, such as silk or rayon.
  • Pliable. Taffeta is a stiff fabric that can create a beautiful, structural silhouette. Embroidered Taffeta also doesn’t lose its shape over time.
  • Does not pill. Taffeta fabric does not pill and maintains its smooth surface.

Guidelines for washing synthetic taffeta:

Wash with cold water. Hot water can cause dyes to bleed. Use gentle detergent. Do not wring or twist garment to avoid damaging the fabric and ruining the shape. Hang to dry in a well-ventilated area not in direct sunlight.

Use a low-heat iron if needed.
