Antique satin refers to any 5 or 8 harness (shaft) satin weave that uses slubed or unevenly spun yarns in the weft (filling). It is usually an upholstery-weight fabric and can be made using silk, rayon or acetate in the warp and coarser cotton or manmade fibers in the weft (filling). It is a satin-faced version of Shantung or Duppioni. The name refers to the fabric's handspun and hand woven appearance.

Antique Satin was developed in the 1950s by combining acetate (warp threads) and rayon (filling threads)mainly as a decorative fabric used primarily for draperies. Unlike wedding satin with the shiny weave visible, antique satin is comprised of small slubs or textures on the face. The yarn most popular was known as 19/2 ply, meaning 19 threads to the inch woven as a two ply thread to create an attractive silk-like appearance. The popular, quality style is 48" wide and first appeared in limited colors. In the late 1950s a company named Penco Fabrics, owned by Jack Penzer, and based at the drapery building, 261 Fifth Avenue, NY, NY, introduced antique satin in 101 colors, virtually revolutionizing the industry. The fabric was copied by others including Fame Fabrics and Richloom, a major supplier today, and by 1963 achieved major distribution throughout the United States. Selling at the mill level for $.59 to $.79 a yard, whether in the natuaral off-white, undyed, fabric to black and colored warp yards with an irridescent effect at the higher price points, the fabric in its basic form remains somewhat popular today.
