Crêpe fabric has a twisted weave which creates a pebbly appearance. Silk crêpe fabric is often used for evening dresses, and is perfect for pieces with a bit of drape, and dresses cut on the bias.
Silk crêpe de chine is an extremely versatile, lightweight silk crêpe, with a sheen and a beautiful drape. Silk drap (pronounced ‘draa’), and also known as marocain or moss crêpe is a heavy, 4 ply silk that provides heaviness whilst retaining its fluid, drapey quality. This crêpe silk fabric is used by many of the couture fashion houses. For our plain silk crêpes, please see here.
