What is "Fustian" - Definition & Explanation

It is a velveteen with a high pick density and is also known as corduroy. The floats of weft are cut to form open fringes which run longitudinally warp way in the fabric giving a rib or cord like appearance.
Fustian is a term for a variety of heavy twilled woven cotton fabrics, chiefly prepared for menswear. Usually dyed in a dark shade. Declined in popularity from 1813, being replaced by harder wearing and better quality wool cloths.
Cotton or cotton with linen or flax in a cross woven weave. It was originally made in Fustat near Cairo, from which it gets its name.
A napped fabric of a mixture of linen and cotton or wool, or a blanket made of such material.
