Printed silk crepe de chines feature a design (or print) that has been dyed in a localized, patterned area. Silk crepe de chine, from the French “crepe of China”, is a versatile silk, possessing a very glossy luster, subtle texture, and surprising lightness in weight. CDC’s twisted weft yarns produce both the crepe texture of the material and its flexible drape. Silk crepe de chine is found to be exceedingly even and uniform in texture. Silk crepe de chine is also an exceptionally forgivable silk when it comes to sewing, as it takes thread well and will typically not fray overly when cut.
