On One Hand: Nylon is the StandardMost modern parachutes are made out of nylon material. During WWII silk was also used extensively, but nylon is still the standard for parachutes used for both safety and for pleasure jumping.On the Other: Shape is Another FactorHow good a parachute is depends on more than the material. If a parachute is configured in a square or a dome, the performance will change. So material is only part of the equation.Bottom LineAny lightweight and strong fabric can be used to make a parachute, depending on the exact properties. Nylon is currently the standard because it's been shown to work reliably, which is an important consideration with a parachute.
