What is "Needle Punching" - Definition & Explanation

A process for making a nonwoven textile in which a continuous mat of randomly laid fibres or filaments is entangled with barbed needles. This causes matting and the production of a "felt" textile.
A non woven bonded fabric. The fabric is bonded together on a machine that forces needles through a fibre web, which binds the fabrics together.
