Is Satin Vegan?

by Toni Olukiran

min read

Satin is the luxurious-feeling fabric that seems to dominate the fashion world every year or so — but is it vegan? Read on for your question answered.

What is satin?

Satin is a type of fabric weave that leaves the material glossy and slinky. It has been produced for hundreds of years, in China and Europe during the middle ages. 

Satin isn't so much a fabric as much as it is a way of manufacturing other fabrics, as satin can use materials such as silk, polyester or nylon to achieve the desired glossy finish. 

Is satin vegan?

It can be! This depends on what fabric is originally used before it is woven to become satin. If the satin in question uses silk, it isn’t vegan, but if it uses plant-fibres and synthetic materials such as polyester or nylon, then it is technically vegan.
