Before 1938, chiffon was made entirely from silk, and this is known as “pure” chiffon. However, advancements in technology and science allowed for a nylon version to be developed as well. 

Chiffon is a translucent, lightweight, balanced, and plain-woven sheer fabric. Chiffon sarees are known for their effortlessly graceful drape and are very easy to carry due to their lightweight nature. They can come in any color with any pattern or design. Some have embroidery on the border, whereas some may have jewel work. Chiffon sarees have a wide range of intricacy, therefore the perfect occasion to flaunt one can arise in many diverse forms.
