Product description

Product description

Duchesse satin numbers among the luxury fabrics. It is tightly woven with an attractive, satiny shine and holds its shape beautifully, forming soft, smooth, but sturdy folds. A perennial favorite for bridal and evening gowns, it also looks great in little black dresses, cocktail numbers, and dressy jackets.

Bring it into your interior designs as curtains or throw pillows for a look of subtle luxury, where it can be an elegant, understated alternative to brocade.

This charcoal duchesse satin is woven of a mix of rayon and polyester. The rayon content lends it breathability that pure polyester satins may lack, while the polyester steps up to make it more durable and wrinkle-resistant. Compared to a pure silk duchesse, this blend is heavier, glossier, and also less pricy – a quality you are sure to welcome if you have a tight budget or just want to experiment with duchesse.

This fabric has a stiff hand; if you need something with the same shine, but more drape, have a look at our silk satins.

With its unique qualities, duchesse can make a simple, full skirt into an event. It is so popular for bridal fashions that it is sometimes called bridal satin. Take it up a notch in combination with organza, chiffon, lace, or tulle.

Care

We recommend dry cleaning this fabric at a reliable dry cleaner. If you risk hand washing, use lukewarm or cold water; do not wring or squeeze dry; block dry on a flat surface. Dry iron on the back on the lowest setting. Avoid water droplets.

FAQ

Should I pre-shrink fabric before sewing?

Generally, pre-shrinking is needed for linen, cotton, and rayon, but for finer fabrics (light rayon, Tencel and modal) proceed with care – don't use hot water or a hot iron, simply launder the fabric the way you will be laundering the completed garment.

Is your product assortment always the same?

Most of our fabrics are one-time offers that last until they are sold out. However, some more popular items are always restocked or can be ordered on request. As a rule, this applies to notions, where the selection is pretty consistent, but may also include some types of fabric. Look at the product's availability value – it shows whether the goods are available while supplies last, in the core inventory or in a seasonal collection.

What is a seasonal collection?

The goods in the seasonal collection come directly from our verified manufacturers. We change up the colors on offer from season to season but fabric quality is always constant. For large (wholesale) orders, colors that have been sold out can be reordered individually.

What is a limited edition?

Limited editions are fabrics of exceptional quality or patterns that have been designed and produced exclusively under the Sartor brand. As a rule, they do not repeat and are therefore only available while supplies last. Don't miss your chance to own a true original.

Do you ship abroad?

Yes. We ship worldwide. The price of shipping is automatically calculated at checkout before payment after you select the country of delivery and the preferred carrier. If you do not find your country in the dropdown list, please contact us. You will find a rough overview of shipping costs in our shipping and payment terms.
