Specialist cotton Voile and Batiste fabrics

Voile is a specialised fabric as it is vert transparent so it lends itself to pleating, for example a pleated front of a dress shirt. The body of dress shirts can be made of voile with a non-transparent fabric for the bib front and cuffs. A pique like the Marcella or a white on white self-design like the Malham 80 white would be perfect. Having the body made in voile means the wearer can keep a jacket on without getting too hot which is often a problem in very formal situations.

The Zephyr or Batiste is not as Transparent as Voile but is still lightweight and softer than most poplins which makes it perfect for summer shirts. All the Zephyr designs are yarn dyed and have a similar amount of threads in the Weft and the Warp which gives a very clear and well defined check.
