The Creation Of Georgette Fabric
The inspiration behind the creation of georgette fabric is chiffon. There was a demand for something very close to chiffon but much more strong and durable.

She was, just like other Italian designers, an innovative individual who gifted this amazing fabric to the world.
What Is Georgette Like?
Oh! You won’t believe how many people ask us this. Tell me, what’s georgette like?
