Atlas is a versatile material that today makes it possible to use it both for an evening out and for everyday wear. For a long time, elegant outfits made from this fabric were obscenely expensive.

Atlas means "smooth" in Arabic. This incredibly beautiful fabric is characterized by an even silky sheen. The main difference is high strength and density. Atlas, however, like other silk fabrics, began to be produced in China more than 2 thousand years ago. For a long time, Chinese craftsmen kept the method of producing this material a secret. But gradually neighboring countries revealed the magic of production. This fabric uses a special type of weave: weft threads are not visible on the front side of the fabric. That is why the front and back sides look different. On the face"fabrics - a beautiful shine, and on the wrong side - roughness.
Any clothes made of satin (and in the old days it was expensive) could only be afforded by very rich people: the nobility and the clergy.

Although silk as a type of satin is still one of the most expensive fabrics.
