SATIN is a glossy, slippery and well-draping weave fabric. Satin is usually made of silk or polyester, but also wool and cotton are used. Depending on the weight and finish of the fabric, light and shiny silk or polyester satins are used in evening gowns and lingerie, while thicker wool satin is used for coats, trousers and other types of outerwear.

CHIFFON is a lightweight, sheer and flowing woven fabric. It is can be made from cotton, silk or synthetic fibers such as nylon, rayon and polyester. This material very thin, hence it is usually layered and made into lighter and finer shirts, blouses and dresses. It can also be used to make accessories like scarves.

ORGANZA is a sheer, stiff, plain weave fabric. This fabric is traditionally made of silk and is used for evening dresses and fine shirts and blouses. The material is light yet structured, hence can be used to add different layers and add volume to a dress for a princess look.
