The origin of the name crash comes from the Russian _krashenina_—colored linen. Crash is usually a plain weave, sometimes twill, and always made from rough, uneven yarns. It has a coarse and slightly loose look. It was originally woven of linen, jute or hemp, and later also of cotton, wool, blends and manufactured fibers.
Uses: Absorbent, crash makes a good towel; dresses; household. Woolen crash is used for suits.
