Soft, shiny, and smooth, satin fabric is a luxurious and elegant fabric type. A satin fabric can also have a shiny face side and a dull and textured back side. A satin fabric is woven in a satin style from a variety of fibers, including silk, cotton, and polyester. Satin fabric has a unique weaving structure that makes it durable and wrinkle-resistant. It is also possible to print intricate designs and styles on satin fabric. Satin fabrics vary in weight, stretch, and luster, and are not all created equal.
