What is Sateen Fabric?
- The sateen weave creates a fabric that is very similar to satin in appearance.
- In most cases, cotton is used in the production process, and the finished product has a silky, glossy finish.
- Spun yarns, not filament, are used to construct the woven framework.
- Floating the weft strands so that they are more prominent on the face of the cloth results in this effect.
- In order to achieve a surface that is entirely flat and homogeneous, the apparent interlacing of the yarns has been minimized.
- In place of the one under, one over pattern that is typical of plain weave, this pattern often travels one beneath the warp strands and then numerous times over the warp yarns.
- Sateen was initially developed in Italy, which was the first western nation.
What Makes it Stand Out
The material drapes beautifully and folds gracefully.
Whether printed or plain, it retains its color and looks wonderful even after several washes.
