Lining

Sateen is a very good quality lining that is recognizable by the face side is glossy and the back is dull.  There is not much difference between sateen and satin but sateen is usually a good weight for lining soft furnishings and Satin is a heavier weight to be used as curtains etc.  The manufacturing difference is the technique used of broken twill weaving in either the warp or weft system.  If the floats are woven parallel to the selvedge (edge of fabric) it is called Satin.  If the floats are woven perpendicular, it is called sateen.

We always recommend that you dry clean our curtain linings at a specialist dry cleaners.

All our lining fabrics are available both online and in store from our fabric warehouse in Northamptonshire.

Before choosing your curtain fabric there are a few points to consider about the type of fabric, type of curtains, curtain lining, curtain pole, pelmets or valences and about how much fabric you will need. Take a look at our measure & calculate page to help you with all these points.
