What are weaves and how are they different from fabrics?
Certain weaves are often mistaken for fabric types. For example, satin is a type of weave that 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. Satin is a weave that is seen in brocade, damask, and tapestry.
