Utrecht Velvet. Mohair furniture plush. Formerly this fabric was manufactured exclusively at Utrecht, Holland, hence the name; but more recently the trade has centered at Amiens, France, and in Connecticut. The latter state supplies over one-half the amount required for domestic use by this country. It is used chiefly for upholstering railway cars and office furniture. It has a mohair pile woven into a linen foundation and is an exceedingly durable material. [See Mohair, Plush, Velvet, Weaving]
