Moire


How is Moiré fabric made?

Moiré is created by using a special finishing technique to woven fabric. It is most often created from a silk fabric foundation. The rippled or wavy pattern is created by heavy rollers engraved with a design “crushing” the silk material. Because of the crushing of the material, there will be a shine variation with highs and lows. This is the most common technique used for fabric that will make its way into evening gowns, special event accessories, or handbags.

Another way Moiré fabric is achieved is by using several different colors in printing fabrics allowing the colors to overlap. Because of the unusual nap and texture of the silk, a stunning color variation is achieved.   

Moiré is durable and attractive. It’s a great way to add a little spice to your home or wardrobe. The material itself is relatively inexpensive and holds up well over time.  

What is Moiré fabric used for?

Moiré is often used in household textiles to add a touch of elegance and glamour. The color variation fabric is ideal for formal window treatments incorporating corded silk panels. Moiré also creates a statement when used for upholstering a chair or creating a throw blanket.

You may also see Moiré fabric used in bedspreads or throw pillows. It’s a cheap and effective way to add a touch of elegance to any bedroom.

Where can you see Moiré fabric used in a wedding?

Good question! Moiré is often used in wedding accessories such as bridesmaid clutches, guest books, flower girl baskets, hair pieces, and maybe even sometimes as a layer on a bridal gown skirt.
