Satin can be made with silk, but the more popular polyester version is also silky smooth but at a more affordable price. You can use it to make everything from gowns to tablecloths for a special occasion. You can choose from many colors and textures, shiny or matte, but no matter what satin you select it’s always associated with lavish softness with that signature satin sheen.
Standard satin, known as bridal satin, can be used for any type of gown. It’s a medium weight satin with a sleek sheen and has a lovely drape fit for a bride. We carry dozens of colors to go with many wedding color palettes.
Crepe back satin is smooth and opaque, and really shiny. The back has a matte crepe texture. This satin is lightweight and drapes wonderfully with the added benefit of being reversible. Premium crepe back satin is heavier than the regular and is a good choice for many apparel projects, especially formal wear.
Matte satin (also known as peau de soie satin) has a matte finish with a very soft sheen. It’s lightweight, drapes beautifully, and can create lovely volume.
Stretch satin is perfect for apparel that needs to form well to the body. Our Stretch L’Amour Satin has a low luster finish similar to matte satin.
Jacquard satin is unique because of its floral print and varied textures. The background has a smooth sheen while the floral print is slightly rougher.
Rosette satin is unique because it has a 3D look with swirls that resemble roses.
