What is "Ottoman" - Definition & Explanation
A piece of furniture with upholstered seat without arms, often used as a stool or footrest. Originally had a storage area inside.
A warp-faced fabric showing a bold weft-way rib.
A medium to heavy weight fabric with wide horizontal ribs. May be knit or woven. Used for women's apparel, upholstery, drapery.
Originated in Turkey, this is a tightly woven, plain-weave, ribbed fabric with a hard, slightly shiny surface. The ribbed effect is created by weaving a finer silk or manufactured warp yarn with a heavier filler yarn, usually made of cotton, wool, rayon or waste yarn that is completely covered by the warp yarn, thus creating the ribbed effect. It is characterized by horizontal ribs and is heavier in weight and with a larger rib than both faille and bengaline. It has very pronounced flat ribs in the filling direction. Ribs are made by a cotton, worsted, silk, or rayon filling which does not show on either the face or the back, because the warp covers the filling entirely. It is called Ottoman Cord or Ottoman rib when a warp rib is employed. Fabric is stiff and cannot be gathered or shirred. Like other ribbed fabrics, it has a tendency to slip at the seams and crack, so it cannot be fitted too tightly. Another type of Ottoman with heavy ribbing is also found in Satin Weave.
A firm lustrous plain weave fabric with horizontal cords which are larger or rounder than those of a faille. The fine warp totally covers the heavier filling.
An ottoman is a piece of furniture, a padded, upholstered seat without arms, often used as a stool or footrest. Also known as a hassock or pouffe.
A tightly woven plain weave ribbed fabric with a hard slightly lustered surface. The ribbed effect is created by weaving a finer silk or manufactured warp yarn with a heavier filler yarn, usually made of cotton, wool, or waste yarn. In the construction, the heavier filler yarn is completely covered by the warp yarn, thus creating the ribbed effect. End uses for this fabric include coats, suits, dresses, upholstery, and draperies.
Fibre: Silk, rayon, wool or synthetics. Weave: Crosswise rib. Characteristics: Heavy in weight - larger rib than both faille and bengaline. Very pronounced flat ribs in the filling direction.
Heavy, plain weave fabric with wide, flat crosswise ribs that are larger and higher than in faille. Sometimes comes with alternating narrow and wide ribs. When made of narrow ribs only, it is called soleil. Warp may be silk, wool or manmade fiber. Used for dress coats and suits, trimmings.
Use of a stiff, heavy weight, warp rib (vertical running yarns) is referred to either as an Ottoman rib or Ottoman cord.
