Poplin

Definition: Poplin

Poplin

n. A heavy, durable fabric consisting of a silk warp with a weft of worsted yarn. It is made with wool, cotton, silk, rayon, or any mixture of these, though originally made from silk. Poplins are used for dress purposes, and for rich upholstery work.

In recent years, Poplin has come to be associated with 100% cotton shirts and it is commonly used for high quality garments. The term originates from "papeline," a fabric made at Avignon, France in the 1400s.
