About Georgette :
Georgette is a lightweight fabric and is made from silk. It is dull-finished fabric named after the early 20th century French dressmaker Georgette de la Plante. It is a bit bouncy and light crepe texture, also slight rough  but gives rubbery texture when rubbed.  Georgette is free flowing textile fabric and used by affluent people. Pure Georgette is expensive and very thin in nature, earlier it was used by royal families as it looks elegant and classy. It is one of the most consumed textile product and always in demand. Generally, georgette is bit transparent so people use slip or linen to wear Georgette Fabic.

Different types of Georgette:

Artificial Georgette or Faux Georgette:  This should not be considered as georgette as this is made of  polyester weaving done in the fabric and that's why called Faux Georgette.  It is the cheapest among all form of Georgette.  

You can find the difference between Pure and Faux Georgette by its roughness.  The Faux Georgette has a very hard roughness compare to Pure Georgette.

Typically, Faux Georgette is 4-5 times cheaper when compare to the Pure Georgette fabric. Another difference is : Dyed Faux georgette looses it colours in few washes and becomes fade, you can experience it by look & feel while Pure georgette always look beautiful and doesn’t loose its colours.

So beware of the shopkeepers who sell cheap georgette (Faux Georgette) in the name of pure Georgette.
