What's the difference between Satin and Silk?

Satin vs Silk: One of the most common questions we receive is what's the difference between satin and silk pillowcases?

Satin is a type of weave that is commonly used on silk to give it its signature shine. The type of satin weave we use at Majesty Silk is Charmeuse. This is the magic behind its lightweight, gorgeous drapery where one side is luxurious in feel and look with a dull reverse to keep the pillowcase in place. 

Silk is a type of fabric that was once exclusive to royalty. Today, its milky texture and stunning lustre have made silk a highly sought after luxury. Mulberry silk is highest in quality and most shimmering in appearance. It gets its glow on a molecular level - silk fibres has a triangular prism-like structure, which refracts light. Majesty Silk is made out of 100% mulberry silk.
