What are weaves and how are they different from fabrics?
Types of weaves have often been mistaken for types of fabrics.
For example, satin is a type of weave, and does not denote fabric content.
Satin is woven from silk, polyester, acetate, or even blends of fibers.
Each different fiber content contributes to the hand and drape of the satin fabric also a weave that is seen in brocade, damask, and tapestry. I once called a fabric store to find jacquard woven fabric only to be told that they didn´t carry natural fabrics.
The correct answer would have been to ask what type of jacquard I was looking for.
