Duchess satin is generally a medium to heavy gauge, luxurious, woven fabric with a higher thread count, traditionally made from silk but more recently of polyester or other synthetic fibres. Duchess satin has a slight sheen and more body than many other fabrics so it is great for creating more structured, formal garments making it a popular fabric for prom, evening and wedding dresses and haute couture.
