Drap (o drapé)

French term, which defines a very fine, soft, shiny woollen fabric, with a sheared pile finishing shaved with direction.// Originally just carded, today it is also used combed and semi-combed: the combing is particularly suitable for elegant and ceremonial// garments for both men (tuxedo) and women, carded for men's overcoats. The characteristic aspect is the work of the finishing, during which the fabric is fulled, garbled, lined, brushed and pressed.
