Satin, because of its construction and fiber content, is one of the most luxurious fabrics manufactured. With a glossy surface and dull back, it is the most desired fabric for wedding gowns and evening gowns.
Satin is believed to have originated in Zaytoun, China, which is now Canton. It became popular in Europe in the 12th century, in Italy in the 13th century and in England in the 14th century.
