Cotton batiste fabric is a fine semi-transparent type of cloth with a soft face and a slight crispness. With weight ranging from 50 to 100 g/m 2, it is great for various summer clothing. Blouses, dresses, skirts, nightgowns and underlining for wedding gowns made of batiste are getting increasingly popular in S/S and A/W 2019/2020 fashion seasons.
It is thin and quite light, but not as much as sheer fabrics. This type of cotton weave is known for its durability. It is a popular choice for a summer dress also due to great hygroscopic, hypoallergic and ventilation properties of cotton batiste.
World’s most successful cotton batiste producers are Italian and Swiss brands as Cotonifio Albini, Carnet, Binda and Hausammann.
The fabrics by European cotton batiste manufacturers are annually updated according to the current fashion trends. In 2019, those are expected to be cotton & silk batiste, cotton voile, and fil coupe cotton batiste.
