A satin weave. The satin weave consists of an almost entirely warp-faced pattern. If silk is used as material, it will be woven as satin, but if cotton or an artificial material is used, it is woven together weft-faced, producing sateen. Warp-faced satin is satin where the warp is the dominant yarn facing out, weft-faced is the opposite of warp-faced. The consistant warp is what gives satin the glossy sheen.
