The garment tag should say what the actual content of the fabric is. I know when I bought “satin” sheets once the tag said polyester. So it should be documented, hopefully!

Here is a definition for delustered satin:

Delustered satin, also called peau de soie (skin of silk), is a less shiny, lightweight material. Unlike the shine associated with other forms of satin, peau de soie is often described as having a dull luster. Delustered satin is usually finished on both sides, making it double-faced. One can also note fine-grained threads in this type of satin.

Here is a link to definitions of different types of satin:

I just googled “what is delustered satin”.

I am thinking that it is poly based; however, I could be wrong. The reason that I think that is because it “doesn’t water spot as easily”, according to the description on the denver fabrics site.

Just googled it and it says that it is polyester based.  =)

 

Google says “Polyester delustered satin is more forgiving than silk satins.”

I think Maggie uses polyester in almost all their dresses, silk satin is quite a bit more expensive.
