Batiste

lightweight cotton fabric, which is diaphonous and very fine to the touch. Made of fine, close-sett yarn and woven in linenweave. Can be single-coloured or printed and is used in the production of ladies' and children's underwear, embroidery and handkerchiefs. The term was used originally for flax fabrics only and is derived from the name of the first producer of fabrics of this type, Frenchman Jean Batiste.
