Burn-Out Shirts

"I notice you have several women's shirts that are listed as a burn-out. What does that mean?"

Burnout or Devoré fabric is a material that has been chemically "burned" with an acid to produce sheer areas. This technique can be used on a wide range of fabrics, including t-shirts and velvets. However, the fabric must be a combination of cellulose (plant) fibers (such as cotton or linen) and protein or manmade fibers (such as silk, wool, polyester or nylon). The acid used burns away the cotton, leaving only the protein or manmade fibers behind. This is why the pattern of sheer areas can vary from shirt to shirt. It all depends on where the acid gel came in contact with the fabric as to where the cotton has been burned away. The results can leave behind some beautiful patterns not to mention a sheer and sexy look!
