Moquette \Mo*quette"\, n. [F.] A kind of carpet having a short velvety pile.


n. 1 A kind of fabric with a thick pile used for carpeting or to upholster seating etc. 2 An article covered in such material.


n. a thick velvety synthetic fabric used for carpets and soft upholstery


Moquette, derived from the French word for carpet, is a type of woven pile fabric in which cut or uncut threads form a short dense cut or loop pile. As well as giving it a distinctive velvet-like feel, the pile construction is particularly durable, and ideally suited to applications such as public transport. Its upright fibres form a flexible, non-rigid surface, which are constantly displaced to give durability and anti-stain benefits. Traditional moquette fabrics are made from a wool nylon face with an interwoven cotton backing.
