Plush

 

a woven pile fabric manufactured by a process similar to that used to make velvet. The pile of plush is longer (up to 6 mm) but not as thick as the pile of velvet. The pile may be cut or uncut. Different methods of manufacture and finishing result in smooth, embossed, or crushed plush. Plushes are used for trimming apparel, upholstering furniture, and making blankets and drapery.
