For a truly luxurious gown a beautiful drapey satin fabric is sure to create an impact.  Duchess Satin is elegant and lustrous and is a heavier weight than other satins because of its higher thread count so creates a more deluxe finish.  Popular for weddings and evening wear, Duchess satin has been a favourite of Couture Houses and Royals.  It has a firm but soft handle with a wonderful body and weight.  Whether for the bride, bridesmaids, prom or evening wear, Duchess Satin is definitely a sumptuous choice.

We have a selection of Duchess Satins in our range and recommend that you order samples to appreciate and evaluate the quality for yourself.  From silk to polyester and more recently eco fabrics, we have a superlative range to offer.
