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 hard wearing and ideally suited to contract performance applications such as daily use on public transport. Its upright fibres form a flexible, non-rigid surface, which are constantly displaced to give hard wearing properties and anti-stain benefits. Traditional moquette fabrics are made from a wool nylon face with an interwoven cotton backing.
