Derived from Organzine, which used to be made from twisted fibers of silk, present day organza has a much more fine texture. Organza was first produced in the Middle Ages and was introduced to the French and Italian cultures. 

Organza is a thin, sheer fabric traditionally made from silk. It is woven in a number of mills, around Bangalore, India. Organza is a light-weight fabric which makes it a good choice for warmer weather. The designs often reflect this theme which can have floral designs and pastel colors. There are, however, darker colors and heavier embellishments available in this category. Organza sarees are very elegant and drape very gracefully, giving the person wearing it, almost an angelic look.
