Journey into the enchanting realm of silk, where the magic lies not just in the material but in the intricate weave of threads. From the ethereal chiffon to the regal satin, each silk type boasts a unique artistry of its own.

Metiseko collections boast not one, not two, but six divine silk types. Uncover the secrets woven into each silk fabric and untangle the world of silk weaves.


Named after the Arabic word for the city of Quanzhou, “Zaitun” or “satin” silk was birthed during medieval China. Traversing the Silk Road, the fabric found its way to Europe in the 14th century. Boasting a very tight weave, silk satin is not only strong (16-30mm), durable and crease-resistant but also possesses an extremely shiny luster and a luxurious soft feel.

The drape and shine of silk satin render it the material of choice for evening and wedding dresses, as well as for lining chic men’s suits.


Also known as crepe de Chine, silk crepe is made from delicate strands of mulberry silk, where some threads gracefully twirl clockwise and others in a counterclockwise direction. The alternating “S” and “Z” twists weaved into silk crepe impart a notable “stony” touch and a texture that’s nothing short of a luxurious bounce.

The crease-resistant fabric of 12mm to 19mm emerges with a brilliant luminosity, making silk crepe a preferred material for clothing and lingerie.


Boasting thick threads and a sumptuous weight of up to 32mm, silk twill dares inks to penetrate its surface and creates garments that drape with mesmerizing flow. The fabric, with its formidable thickness, holds the secret to a dual identity in its oblique stripes–a burst of bright hues emerges on one side, while on the other, deep shades grace the fabric with a matte sheen.The material of choice for haute couture creations, silk twill has earned its stripes in the world of luxury, becoming a textile muse for the iconic silk squares of the esteemed Hermès brand.


Also known as “China Silk,” Habutai fabric derives its name from a Japanese term meaning “soft as down,” alluding to the ethereal lightness and delicacy woven into the material. Silk with a Habutai weave can be as exquisitely light as 6mm.

Habutai silk boasts a plain weave that caresses the skin with a gentle touch and sparkles with a lustrous sheen. Renowned for its smooth finish, fluid drape, and lightweight elegance, along with its breathability and absorbency, this versatile silk type is an ideal choice for lining suits and jackets, as well as evening wear, blouses, scarves and ties.


Adorned with distinctive irregular ridges known as slubs, Shantung silk carries a weightless grace (8mm-25mm) and subtly textured surface that creates an exquisite dance of light and shadow. It is in this unique irregularity that the fabric finds its charm, making it the gold standard among silk connoisseurs and earning its esteemed place as the fabric of choice for high-end wedding dresses.
