The fabric is usually produced from silk, it also can be manufactured with cotton and synthetic materials which imitate silk (polyester, nylon, rayon or acetate). Crepe de chine fabric features a silky smooth feel, fluid drape and grainy texture. Lightweight, dense and breathable, it does not have a glossy luster, however. Silk crepe de chine is an ideal choice for evening or bridal dresses, airy summer blouses, skirts, shawls and scarves.
