What is Plisse?

Plissé is a fabric that has a unique texture with a crinkled or puckered surface. The process of creating plissé involves treating the fabric with a caustic soda solution, which causes some areas of the fibers to shrink and others to remain the same.

After the treatment, the fabric is heat-set to maintain the crinkled appearance. This process creates a lightweight, textured fabric that is distinctive and visually appealing.

Plissé fabrics can be made from various fibers such as cotton, silk, polyester, or rayon. They are available in different patterns and colors, making them a versatile fabric choice for a range of applications. They are commonly used in clothing such as dresses, skirts, and blouses, as well as home decor items like curtains and bedspreads.

One of the advantages of plissé fabric is its ability to stretch and move with the body, making it comfortable to wear. The crinkled texture of the fabric also helps to hide wrinkles and creases, making it ideal for travel clothing.

Plissé fabric is also relatively low maintenance and can be machine washed and dried, making it an easy-care fabric.
