Crepe

Definition

Crepe is named after the French word for “crimped,” and that’s just what it is: a fabric with a pebbly surface texture. This puckered, gauze-like cotton fabric can be created by using high twist yarns, textured yarns, special weaves, chemical treatments or embossing. Due to its draping and lightweight weave, crepe is used to make loose-fitting dresses, bridal gowns, and evening wear.
