Duchesse Satin

Duchesse Satin is a soft, heavy lustrous fabric. It is made using a satin weave, usually from a very fine silk yarn, but increasingly viscose warp threads are used. Duchesse Satin is mainly used in evening wear, women’s formal dresses and wedding gowns. It is a high quality satin fabric because of its high thread count and the fact it holds its shape well. Duchesse Satin has a definite technical front and back as it is highly shiny on one side and dull on the other. It can be made out of polyester as well to make it cheaper whilst still keeping the same properties.
