Hi everyone, it’s Yuko from kay me’s atelier team!
Today I’d like to tell you all about one of the fabrics we use here at kay me, rayon.
So what is rayon made of? Starting with fibre (cellulose) contained in natural wood pulp, it’s chemically melted to make the soft fine fibres that make up rayon. Although it’s chemically made, modern rayon is strong and supple, as well as skin-friendly – feel cool in summer and warm in winter.
Believe it or not, it’s actually recommended to wear in the summer as it has a natural deodorising effect!
One of the reasons we choose to use this fabric is the rich lustre of top-quality rayon, and how well it can take colour meaning prints stay sharper and bolder for longer.
It also drapes beautifully, helping to show off the handmade tucks, pleats and drapes of our unique dress patterns.
Take a look at some of my favourite dresses available in rayon:
Until next time… Yuko.
