Contrado Silk Satin
The front texture is a smooth, sleek, graceful fabric with a glossy shine to the finish of the lustrous face. In contrast, the back texture is just as smooth and soft and flowing but with a crepe finish to it, which actually changes the texture a lot, but still keeps the overall feel soft and fluid. The way this fabric feels on the body is so effortless that it almost feels weightless, it’s very soft and moves over the skin very easily. When it comes to the drape, the material flows and falls in natural waves and folds.
Unlike the majority of silk satin providers, we use reactive printing, the highest quality printing method and the only way to honor 100% natural silk. Being 100% natural fabric, no chemicals have been used on the fibers of the fabric. With a shiny finish on the face and a matt on the reverse, the detail of the final print is very fine and produces very crisp lines with rich block colors. Precision is clear here, intricate work will show up perfectly. Your print will also have a stunning luminosity, which you can only get with natural fabrics. Our silk is printed using a reactive printing process which creates superior color depth, wash and rub fastness. Unlike pigment, the reactive dyes we use bound to the fabric fibers, rather than lying on the surface - meaning your silk can be washed with other garments.
