What is "Moire" - Definition & Explanation
A wavy watermark pattern produced by calendering 2 layers of fabric together or embossing with an engraved roller. This causes the embossed or crushed parts of the fabric to reflect light differently. It is often done on corded fabrics and is often used for upholstery and drapery.
Silk, rayon, or cotton in a plain or crosswise rib weave. It has a watermarked finish that is fairly stiff with body in most cases. It is produced by passing the fabric between engraved cylinders which press the design into the material, causing the crushed and uncrushed parts to reflect the light differently. The pattern is not permanent, except on acetate rayon.
A fabric which when subjected to heat or pressure exhibits a rippled appearance due to differences in surface reflections.
A watered silk or wood grain effect printed or embossed on the decorative surface of wallpaper.
