Nylon fabric is the most widely used material in the making of parachutes because it is strong, and light enough to fit inside a very small area.
Parachutes are made of a material called Kevlar. It is a synthetic fibre that is strong and resistant to heat. It is also of very low density and therefore suitable in providing that air lift. Earlier models evolved from nylon, to silk and now Kevlar.
