Surface textures

Notice how ersonalise silk satin fabric has a smooth, sleek, graceful front texture with a glossy shine to the finish of the lustrous face. In contrast, the back texture is just as smooth and soft and flowing but with a crepe finish to it, which actually changes the texture a lot, but still keeps the overall feel soft and fluid. The way this fabric feels on the body is so effortless that it almost feels weightless, it’s very soft and moves over the skin very easily. When it comes to the drape, the material flows and falls in natural waves and folds.

Print detail

Being a 100% natural fabric, no chemicals have been used on the fibres of the fabric. With a shiny finish on the face and a matt on the reverse, the detail of the final print is very fine and produces very crisp lines with rich block colours. Precision is clear here, intricate work will show up perfectly. Personalise silk satin fabric with a stunning luminosity, which you can only get with natural fabrics. Our silk printing, UK made, is printed on one side, and whilst there is complete show through on the Georgette silk, this Silk Satin has limited show through (20%) and in essence, one side looks unprinted. Due to the print process areas of solid colour may show slight marbling lines. This is to be expected and we would advise avoiding large blocks of colour and favouring more intricate designs.
