What are satin and silk fabrics?

Silk Fabrics

Known for its luxuriously soft, smooth texture and beautiful drape silk is a natural protein fibre, threads are naturally created by the silkworm, extracted from their cocoons. These silk threads produce one of the strongest natural fibres making silk fabric both strong and durable. Silk threads are woven into textiles to create silk fabrics as we know them, however, our faux silk fabrics are made by weaving polyester threads. Silk fabric is highly valued with many desirable properties for clothing, drapery or bedding. Our faux silk fabric is designed to replicate the benefits and look of a natural silk fabric without the extensive price tag. A popular and highly sought-after alternative due to its high quality and versatility.

Satin Fabrics

The beautiful, high-shine nature of satin fabrics lies in the weaving technique of the fabric, unlike silk whose shine results from the threads themselves. Satin fabrics involve a specific interlacing thread technique, leaving long floats of uncovered surface threads. Satin’s shine comes down to these simple floats, as they catch light, light bounces and reflects off the surface creating a beautiful slippery, sheen-like material. Satin fabric is thankfully much easier to care for than silk as it is usually made from polyester however can also be made from threads. This cool, smooth textured fabric boasts long floats adding a special touch of elegance to your home or wardrobe.
