Good quality Taffeta is made in silk.  To cut costs a cheaper taffeta may be made in synthetic fibers like nylon. So in your case, since they are calling it ‘silk taffeta’ they are just making it a point so that you know its made in silk..but you can always read the care label..it may still say 70% silk, 30% nylon…

@munntj10: Taffeta is the type of fabric and it can be in silk or polyester or a blend of the two. I LOVE silk taffeta although I’ve gone for a power-woven dupion instead for my dress (my corset is in red/black silk taffeta).
