Sateen fabric is a soft, smooth, satin-like fabric. It is produced using a ‘Sateen Weave’ and is closely woven to create a glossy surface. This fabric is generally made from cotton. A Sateen weave is where the weft yarns are floated so that the surface is predominantly long weft yarns and the weaving under the warp yarns is minimised. To create an even smoother surface, the cotton yarns are often mercerised to improve the lustre. Sateen fabric is generally less expensive than genuine satin fabric; it can be produced in various weights and is used mainly for lining garments.
