Sateens are 100% cotton fabrics woven in a particular fashion.
Excellent quality sateens such as those sold here are pretty hard to come by.
Sateens are 100% cotton fabrics woven in a particular fashion. The way this fabric is made is by changing the weave pattern a bit. A square cloth, for instance, weaves the horizontal and vertical threads up and down through each other regularly without skipping. We have all seen burlap, so we know what a regular weave is, square cloth is just on a much finer scale. Sateen, however, skips threads by weaving one down and two up threads, which creates the smooth, satiny glow and, just by skipping threads in this manner, the flimsy, dangly drape that we love so much. You will just adore these excellent boxers!
We have been purchasing these 100% cotton, sateen fabrics from Spechler-Vogel Textiles for many years now. This particular fabric is of a very high quality.
