We have all struggled with finding the right kind of abaya fabric because with so many different options out there, it can become quite difficult to pick your favorite. Not only that, but comfortability can be a big factor too in this. So, before you confuse yourself anymore, here’s a guide to all the fabrics available and what you can make out of them:
- Nidha fabric
Nidha is a 100% polyester fabric which gives a very luxurious and elegant look. It also means that it works best for hot weather and is very comfortable in such environment. Nidha fabric is also very perfect for events and occasions. So, if you want a luxury look to your abayas with comfortability, nidha is the way to go.
Linen is the kind of fabric which may seem to be two or three times stronger than cotton which is especially good when it comes to creating an abaya. Just like nidha, linen is also well regarded for its heat conductive properties, which again makes it a good pick for summer abayas. But unlike nidha, linen fabric has a different kind of flare to it which makes it good for flowy fabric.
Chiffon is most of the time regarded for lightweight and elegancy. It’s also a very sheer see through fabric and this is the reason that it is often used with a lining or under fabric. If you want to aim for something such as beautiful evening gown then chiffon is your best fabric. Chiffon has a quite flowy nature which is why it can be best for flowy gowns.
- Pure crepe
Pure crepe is basically a tissue kind of fabric which has a very papery feel to it. The best part about crepe is that it does not crease very easily unlike chiffon and linen whose crease lines are immediately visible. We would recommend you to use crepe fabric for slim fit design as that’s the look which would look best with the crepe.
Jerseys are the stretchy fabric and also very versatile. You must have seen them being used in tops, dresses and even skirts which is what makes it the best slim fit abaya style.
