Silk Satin

Silk satin is a very special type of satin weave — made only from silk. This fabric both looks and feels incredibly luxurious and it doesn’t attract static electricity, cling or get hot like synthetic materials do.

Lower quality satin weaves are made from synthetic fibres, but pure stretch silk satin is very special and has been highly prized by dressmakers, tailors and interior decorators throughout history. Buy silk satin fabric by the yard and you’ll have the potential to create many beautiful fashion and decor projects.

Breathable, lightweight and touchably soft — silk satin feels as good as it looks.

Silk Satin Fabric

You know pure silk satin as soon as you see it — the lustrous, opalescent high-shine surface is unmistakable.

The term satin refers to the way of weaving the silk fibres. The warp threads are floated above the other fibres in the fabric to create the smooth, shiny and seamless surface of the satin. Since stretch silk satin is made from pure silk, it breathes just as you would expect from a natural fiber. This makes the fabric comfortable and versatile, as well as beautiful.

Ever since it originated 2,000 years ago in China, satin has been considered one of the most beautiful, sought after and cherished fabrics. When silk production came to Europe in the 1300s, satin became the fabric of choice for the upper class and nobility.
