History of the satin fabric
There are several explanations for the origin of the word satin. It is said that the word is derived from the Chinese port city of Quanzhou, whose name in Arabic would be Zayton or Zaitūnī. The Dutch word satin is ultimately derived from the French word "satin." In the Middle Ages, satin was made mainly from silk and later from cotton (as we know it today). Today, a satin fabric can be made from a variety of materials. Most satin shirts are made of cotton, sometimes with a percentage of satin.
Variations of the satin fabric
Several variants with satin weave can be distinguished. Some variants are heavy (duchesse and slipper satin), others are light (charmeuse and messaline). In addition, satin can be woven with wool (Sultan) or silk (Gattar). Most satin shirts are made of 100% cotton. A satin fabric that is made exclusively of cotton is called satin. Satin shirts are lightweight, have a slight sheen effect and are soft to the touch.
