In a tissue cycle of a satin fabric, there is only one single tissue point (via tissue point or weft tissue point) on each warp (or weft), and there is a certain amount between individual tissue points on two adjacent yarns. The spacing is covered by the long floating line or the long floating line on both sides, so that the surface of the fabric is almost entirely composed of a long floating line or a long floating line, so the cloth surface is smooth and even, soft and lustrous. Moreover, since the warp length of the warp satin yarn is arranged along the warp direction of the fabric, the gloss is superior to the weft satin. When making garments from this fabric, it is best to cut along the warp to get the best gloss. In addition, the gloss of the satin fabric is also related to the raw materials used, and the raw materials are different, and the gloss is largely different.

The yarns of the satin fabric can be closely arranged so that there is almost no gap between the yarns, and the gas permeability is not as good as that of plain and twill. From the appearance, the satin fabric has no clear lines.

Satin fabric is not easy to wrinkle, but it is easy to hook and fluff, and wear resistance is also poor. The greater the number of circulating yarns in the satin weave, the longer the yarn length on the surface of the fabric, the better the gloss of the fabric, the softer the hand, but the worse the fastness. Therefore, satin fabrics are generally used for garments that require high gloss, such as evening dresses, stage dresses, and upholstery fabrics.

Satin fabrics have a large number of yarn cycles, and the number of heald frames required for manufacturing is large, and the process is relatively complicated, and is generally used for relatively high-grade products. In cotton and wool fabrics, satin weaves are not used much. The main varieties are satin in cotton fabrics, tributes in wool fabrics, etc., and are used more in silk fabrics, such as satin, satin, brocade, etc.
