Satin Fabrics are one of the most popular dressmaking fabrics we stock - popular for their luxurious quality and glossy finish satin is one of the most widely used fabrics in the fashion industry. Satin Fabrics originate from China and have been exported to the west since the time of the Ancient Greeks and have been used in Europe since the middle ages. In years gone by, Satin Fabrics were exclusive to the wealthiest in society however, with advances in technology it has become easier and more cost effective to mass produce Satin Fabrics resulting in a material more available to everyone. Satin Fabrics are widely used for bridal gowns and evening wear and are available to purchase in a range of attractive finishes including heavier weight duchess satin and our luxurious quality satin back crepe.[caption id="attachment_4073" align="alignleft" width="300"] Our selection of silky Satin Fabrics have proven to be extremely popular for a range of dressmaking projects.[/caption]
