Satin dates to the Middle Ages where it originated in Zaytoun (Zaitin, Canton) China. By the time it arrived in Europe around the twelfth to thirteenth centuries it was spelt aceytuin; in Italy it was zetin then finally to Satin as we know and love it today. It was the court favourite in England from around the fourteenth century.
