History of Satin

Satin Fabric

Originated from China, Satin is one of the most smooth and silky fabrics to be used in fancy dresses and gowns. The main originality of satin was the 5-end wrap weaved during the dynasty of Northern Song. `

During the cultivation of silk, the process became widespread that even a peasant woman used silk to master the craft of weaving the satin. In the 12th century, Italy became the 1st country to produce satin and by mid - the 14th century, it became available all across Europe. However, using silk made the fabric expensive so it was reserved only for the upper class.

Whilst the front side of the satin looks and feels luxurious, the backside of the fabric looks the opposite. This is due to the procedure of weaving the cloth, as it makes the final fabric much more lustrous.

In summers, the satin fabric will not let you breathe as they tend to heat up fast. Satin has a slippery texture which makes it difficult to work and it takes time to perfect the art of stitching satin. Satin silk fabric is much more delicate than any other fabric and can be easily prone to snag or thread pull which can ruin your fabric. 

Whereas synthetic silk is weaved closely and can’t be washed in washing machines, they are required to be dry cleaned. When we say synthetic it includes acetate and nylon, wherein acetate is a flammable fabric. Satin can’t be used for making outfits for kids or for decoration for places where these could easily be exposed to flame.
