Satin takes its name from the distinctive weave structure used during the manufacturing process. One yarn dominates another, appearing to float on top of the yarns woven in the opposite direction. Further enhancing this method, Chilewich created pearlescent yarns to move in the “fill” direction andmatte yarns in the “warp” direction for a different look on each side. The yarns were strategically spaced across the width of the textile to create graduating open spaces, which result in a beautiful effect when the placemat and runner are layered together on the table. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Made in USA with TerraStrand® and Microban®.
