A fabric construction in which a layer of down or fiberfill is placed between two layers of fabric, and then held in place by stitching or sealing in a regular, consistent, all-over pattern on the goods.
Stitching that joins the fashion fabric, a batting or interlining, and a backing fabric. The stitches form a slightly puffy, raised design, usually in a geometric or other decorative pattern.
