What is "Satin Nylon" - Definition & Explanation

This type of satin-finish material is usually made of nylon. According to one manufacturer, satin nylon is probably the most common satin fabric used in our industry. There are two types of satin nylon used most commonly in our field: Taffeta, and “crow's foot” or pro-weight (heavier). Rayon (or bridal) satin is used occasionally for jackets, but it is a more expensive dry-clean-only fabric.
