    Cotton satin, not to be confused with...

    Cotton satin is often confused with polyester satin, the shiny, smooth fabric. Satin, however, says nothing about the material, instead it is about the weave. Cotton satin is made from 100% natural cotton and therefore has all the wonderful qualities of cotton: it is breathable and moisture-absorbent. A cotton satin duvet cover set feels much softer and smoother than a 'normal' cotton duvet cover set due to the special 'satin weave'. Moreover, the colours on cotton satin will remain beautiful for far longer. 

    What is a satin weave?

    This is a bit of a technical story. In a satin weave, the cotton is woven tighter than it is with cotton percale or cotton renforcé. So, many more threads are used. The 'thread count' indicates the number of threads per square inch. The higher the thread count, the higher the quality and the smoother the fabric will be. In the satin weave, the upper weft threads are loose, which gives the fabric its gorgeous shine. Cotton satin not only looks luxurious, but it feels like luxury too!
