What is different between silk and satin?

    The soft, lustrous fiber obtained as a filament from the cocoon of the silkworm. More widely though it is also considered any fiber or filamentous matter resembling silk, as a filament produced by certain spiders, the thread of a mollusk, or the like. Satin, on the other hand, is a weave that typically has a glossy surface and a dull back. It is a warp-dominated weaving technique that forms a minimum number of interlacings in a fabric. If a fabric is formed with a satin weave using filament fibers such as silk, nylon, or polyester, the corresponding fabric is termed a satin.
