A group of fabrics with small, distinct dobby woven designs that appear subtly padded or embossed. Piqué is French for “quilted,” and from the look of their tiny patterns, piqués could have been quilted by mice! The fabrics in this group have distinctly different face and reverse sides. Most are cotton or cotton blends.

Uses: Dresses, blouses, sportswear, children’s clothing, draperies
