Satin is a thick cloth that has a glossy surface and a dull back. It is traditionally made of silk in which the filling is so arranged as to bind the warp as seldom as possible and so spaced that practically nothing shows but the warp. Satin was first woven by the ancient silk weavers of China and was greatly desired by early Greeks and Romans.
In the middle ages, satin was rare and costly and was used for churchly and royal garments. As the secrets of silk making were carried westward, splendid satins were woven in Genoa and Florence, then at Lyons and in England in the 15th cent. Modern satins are made in a great variety of fibers, including synthetic ones.

Satin FabricLush silk is easy to sew but needs to be underlined to maintain shape. This is a satin that is reminiscent of turn-of-the-century ball gowns glistening under gaslight chandeliers. It is excellent for bridal, christening, fancy evening ballgowns. It also makes beautiful drapes, although expensive.
