What is Lamour Satin?

Lamour Satin is a gorgeous choice of linen for your special event. Whether you’re planning a wedding, birthday party, or Quinceaneras, Lamour is a fantastic choice. You may also have noticed Lamour in fashion and clothing textiles. Lamour is ready to make its mark as a go-to fabric for base linens! We foresee Lamour as on par with traditional Satin and Polyester. All Lamour needs is fans like you to spread the word!

Lamour Satin vs Satin: How Is It Different Than Traditional Satin?

For most people, the name satin conjures images of sleek, shiny material. While Lamour is certainly considered satin, it has a matte finish without satin’s characteristic shine. 

If you’re torn between the matte of Polyester and the shine of Satin, you’ll definitely want to opt for Lamour’s polished appearance.

Where is it Used?

Lamour Satin finds its way into many special places. Imagine it as a star fabric at fancy gatherings.

Why People Like Lamour Satin

People are drawn to this fabric for several simple reasons:

Shiny and Smooth: Imagine a beautiful pearl shining in the sun. This fabric shines in the same way, making you feel like a star. It's smooth like your favorite soft toy, making it really nice to touch.

Lots of Colors: Just like a big box of crayons, it comes in many colors. This means you can pick the color that makes you feel happiest. You could have a bright red dress for a bold look or a calming blue one for elegance. Some of the options we have in our catalog include white, ivory satin, and pink satin tablecloths.

Drapes Nicely: Think of how a waterfall flows gracefully down a hill. It drapes in a similar way. When you wear a dress in this fabric, it moves beautifully with every step.

Comfortable: Imagine wearing clothes that feel like a gentle hug. Lamour Satin is that kind of fabric. It's comfy to wear, so you won't fidget or itch when you have it on.

How is it Made?

This delicate fabric isn't created by magic; it's made through a unique process. It starts with special threads called "satin weave." Imagine making a checkerboard with threads. The shiny squares in the checkerboard are like the shiny parts of Lamour Satin, and the lines between them are the other threads. When woven this way, it gives a lovely shine and smoothness.

Taking Care of Lamour Satin

To keep your items looking their best, follow these simple steps:

Gentle Cleaning: Wash it gently, either by hand or using a washing machine in a delicate setting. Always use cold water and mild detergent, like a gentle soap.

No Ironing Directly: Pretend like it is like a delicate flower. When it comes to ironing, don't touch it directly with a hot iron. For a satin round tablecloth, use a cloth between the iron and the fabric, or use a low-heat setting to keep it safe from harm.

Hang it Up: After its spa day, let it relax by hanging it up to dry. Don't squeeze or wring it out, as that can hurt the fabric. Just let it air dry naturally, like clothes drying on a sunny day.

Remember, Lamour satin isn't just any fabric; it's a special one that adds a touch of elegance to your special moments. So, when you see it at weddings or parties, you'll know why people love it, how it's made, and how to care for it, all in simple words.
