By the time it arrived in Europe around the twelfth to thirteenth centuries it was spelt aceytuin; in Italy it was zetin then finally to Satin as we know and love it today. It was the court favourite in England from around the fourteenth century.

What is Crepe Backed Satin?

Lustrous and smooth on one side, with a soft crepe texture on the other; you can use either side of this amazing reversible fabric. Therefore, it can also be called Satin Crepe, Crepe Satin or Satin-backed Crepe. Another common name used for the material is Silk Charmeuse. We also offer a beautiful Stretch version of the fabric. Available in different weights, from light to super weight, and a plethora of colour options. Our favourite shade is Ivory and there are a few different weights.

Generally a light-weight fabric relatively speaking, woven with a satin weave where the warp threads cross over four or more of the weft (backing) threads. The float threads give the smooth, reflective side, whereas the reverse has a matte finish.

Pins can mark the fabric when cutting and sewing with it; use clips and/or sewing weights to aid the sewing process. The fluid drapes comes from being cut on the bias.

The fabrics uses in menswear includes but not limited to, boxer shorts, jackets, handkerchiefs, trousers and of course the finest of pure silk ties.

The fabric is often carefully pre-shrunk, prior to you constructing your garment. This may allow for a very gentle hand-wash, as opposed to having to dry-clean your outfit. This is entirely down to the customers own choice in how they wish to treat their finished article or item. There remains different schools of thought on this and it would of course, be entirely your own personal choice and decision.
