    Etymology: [F.]


  1. Moquette

    Moquette derived from the French word for carpet - is a type of woven pile fabric in which cut or uncut threads form a short dense cut or loop pile. As well as giving it a distinctive velvet like feel, the pile construction is particularly durable, and ideally suited to applications such as public transport. Its upright fibres form a flexible, non-rigid surface, which are constantly displaced to give durability and anti-stain benefits. Traditional moquette fabrics are made from a wool nylon face with an interwoven cotton backing.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Moquette

    mō-ket′, n. a material for carpets, with a loose velvety pile—the back thick canvas, &c. [Fr.]
