The VFG Fabric Resource describes satin as the name of one of the basic weaves, and also a fabric made in this weave. Owing to its silk or manufactured filament yarns and its uninterrupted warp yarn face, satin is very lustrous. Satin originated in China, and takes its name from Zaytoun, now Guangzhou, in southern China.
The dressy luster of satin has long been treasured for evening wear and lingerie…perfect for dolling up!
