Piqué is a heavy cotton material woven in corded or figured effects. The goods are used for such purposes as ladies’ tailor-made suits, vesting’s, shirt fronts, cravats, bedspreads, and the like. It was originally woven in diamond-shaped designs to imitate quilting. The name is French for quilting. The plainest and most common fabrics of piqué are those in which the pattern consists of straight cords extending across the cloth in the direction of the weft.
