    Silk crepe (Crepe de chine)

    Features:Silk crepe has the youngest look of silk. It is matt finishing with very subtle puckered surface.

    Silk crepe is one of the most popular silk kind in MsEnvy.

    The reason is it has the youngest look, mostly non transparency when reach 12mm, customer can order a pure silk made garment without mixing polyester lining, pure nature in the whole piece. In summer, it is the most wearable silk kind, it is also the easiest kind to be take care of, due to the structure and surface finishing, it is less easy to occur damage or yarn drawn out when compare with silk chiffon or silk satin.

    Most silk shirts are made by the silk crepe, generally we use 12mm weight, this weight is the most common weight as well, we can see most low to medium fashion label use this weight of silk crepe.

    The thickness of it is not completely non-transparency if in white or light colors, but if in dark colors, it is non-transparency. This is the cheapest and the least mm (weight) to achieve a non-transparency thickness of silk crepe.

    Normally if we use 12mm silk crepe, we can avoid to use lining for a top or shirt, if it is a dress, a lining is needed if in light colors. For Medium to high-end fashion labels, we use 14mm to 16mm silk crepe, the cost of them has quite a big difference when compare with 12mm, even though just 2mm to 4mm difference, but since there are lesser customers producing these weights of silk crepe, so the market supply is not too much as 12mm, and cost difference are comparably big due to lesser supply and demand. Only few mills or silk suppliers provide 14mm or 16mm color cards with available stocks, and even they have the color cards, it provides only around 20 to 40 colors options with available stocks.

  • 01

    The main difference for 14mm or 16mm silk crepe compare with 12mm silk crepe, is if it is in white or light color, it is still non-transparency. For some fashion labels if their customer can afford higher price point, 14mm silk crepe supposedly is the best weight for a silk shirt. And 16mm silk crepe for a dress even in white or light colors, there is no need for lining as well.

    Silk crinkle

    Features:Silk Crinkle has a crinkle effect on surface, transparency, a little matt finishing and less shine as silk chiffon. It has younger and causaler look than silk chiffon. Silk crinkle and silk chiffon sometimes will be compared because the nature of them are very similar.

    We believe silk cotton is the most sustainable silk type in the future, pure silk is expensive, the supply of it is less due to the sericulture production is unique and rare. But the nature and strength of silk is unbeatable, to balance the cost and remain the fullness of its nature fabric composition, silk cotton is our best choice to make silk fibers more down-to-earth.

    And in fact, silk cotton has its own strengths. Firstly, silk cotton has most unique strengths of silk, but the body of the fabric is not too drape, some dress design if we need to have a firm fitting shape but still remain the softness of the hand feeling, silk cotton can obtain this effect.

  • 05

    Besides, it just has subtle shine on surface, so for informal day dress, or younger look causal styles, its unique features can carry out some styles very well.

    The most advantage of it is the cost of silk cotton, it is much cheaper than pure silk, just reasonably higher than pure cotton, the relatively low price range for silk cotton is very acceptable for mass market, especially since it is premium natural fabric.
