Batiste fabric is a plain weave, which is soft, lightweight, and opaque, commonly made from cotton fabric, wool fabric, polyester fabric or a blend fabrics. Batiste fabric does not receive an acid wash during manufacturing, and therefore is not transparent like organdy fabric. It is used extensively in childrens' clothes due to its delicate touch and extremely soft hand. The tremendously breathable material is a favorite for smocking and heirloom pieces, as well as lingerie fabric and other special occasion garments.
