Taft er et glitrende materiale, der er let og blødt. Oprindeligt blev taft lavet af silke, til de fine damers kjoler, men nu laves det af syntetiske fibre så som polyester. Taft er et taknemmeligt materiale, hvor du nemt kan sy noget der ligner en million, for få penge. Det bliver brugt til galla tøj, afdansningsballer, kostumer osv. Den oprindelige betegnelse kan spores tilbage til en bestemt væv, hvor tynde vævetråde står tæt ved hinanden og en tyk sluttråd lægges ind. I elegante aften- eller gallabeklædninger eller i dekorationer finder taft sin hyppigste anvendelse.
