Barege is a lightweight, sheer gauze-like fabric. It is made from Worsted which is usually mixed with silk or cotton. First manufactured in the 19th Century and its name originates from the Bareges Valley in the French Pyrenees. Barege is most commonly used for women’s veils and shawls. Depending on the weight and fibre construction of the fabric it can be almost transparent in some cases.
