Embossing is a process by which any type of fabric (or leather) is pressed by a stamp or engraved rollers, leaving a pattern. Heat is usually involved and often the fabric has a property to help hold the pattern; cotton, for instance, is usually resin-coated. A great range of fabrics may be embossed, and the pattern of the emboss may be crepe-like, jacquard-like or one of many other designs.
