Satin has a long history behind it and itself has always been a material to add that touch of glamour to otherwise functional items of clothing. Giving that extra hint of magic to spice them up. Originally first crafted in the 12th Century in Zayton, China, the port city from which it also took its name. In its infancy this stunning fabric was only obtainable for the very rich, due to using only the finest silks.
These beautiful threads were brought to Europe along the Silk Road, the infamous network of transport routes which primarily brought silk to the rest of the world. In recent years, the use of silk in the creation of satin has declined in favour of more readily available materials such as polyester and cotton, with only the very highest priced items using the original silk design.
Satin has a unique production method, using a very different textile weave to more conventional materials, whereas normal fabric is crafted using the typical method of the threads going one over and one under, in each direction. Satin creators chose the novel move of four over and one under, which ensures satin has that unmistakably glossy final look, due to much less interlacing of the threads.
The fashion houses realising once again, the allure to the timeless satin look, decided to bring this material bursting into 2016 with their array of stunning summer satin jackets.
