Perhaps the most hardwearing fabric, tightly woven with the wefts creating a loop between each warp thread, visible on the face and adding depth.

It is similar to some velvet weaves, but in this case the loops are left uncut. cotton, linen or wool can be used in any combination, for instance a heavier warp with a softer weft. It is suitable for upholstery of bedheads, floor rugs, walling, screens and flat curtains. It is perhaps best known for its use on commercial transport seating–on busses, planes and trains.

It shares weaving  similarities with Brussels weave carpets.
