A fabric that takes it’s name from Cambrai, a French town equidistant from Brussels and Paris, renowned for both weaving and lace making since the end of the 16thC. Made from linen or cotton, a closely woven plain weave white fabric finished on one side by calendering to create its distinctive sheen. Cambric, is widely used for cushion pad covers as the close weave prevents feathers from creeping through.

Linen batiste and chambray are both types of cambric cloth.
