Origin: [F. pluche, peluche (cf. It. peluzzo), fr. L. pilus hair. See pile hair, and cf. Peruke.]
Plush is a textile having a cut nap or pile the same as fustian or velvet. Originally the pile of plush consisted of mohair or worsted yarn, but now silk by itself or with a cotton backing is used for plush, the distinction from velvet being found in the longer and less dense pile of plush. The soft material is largely used for upholstery and furniture purposes, and is also much employed in dress and millinery. Modern plush are commonly manufactured from synthetic fibres such as polyester. One of the largest uses of this fabric is in the production of stuffed toys, with small stuffed animals made from plush fabric, such as teddy bears. Plush is also one of the main materials for the construction of designer toys.
Chambers 20th Century Dictionary
plush, n. a variety of cloth woven like velvet, but differing from it in having a longer and more open pile.—adj. Plush′y, of or resembling plush. [Fr. peluche, through Low L., from L. pilus, hair. See Pile, a hairy surface.]
