What is "EpinglÚ fabric" - Definition & Explanation

A type of velvet fabric woven on a wire loom or ÚpinglÚ loom. The ÚpinglÚ velvet is specific by the fact that both loop pile and cut pile can be integrated into the same fabric. The art of ÚpinglÚ weaving in Europe originates from Lucca (Italy) and later Venice and Genua. Actually the term 'Genua velvet' is still in use. The Flemish region of Kortrijk and Waregem (Belgium) is the area whereupon today the technique of ÚpinglÚ weaving is still very actual. The fabric finds it application mostly in upholstery, although in medieval times it was used as apparel for princes and kings as well as for bishops, cardinals and the pope.
