|Material type||Woven fabric|
Dobby, or dobbie, is a woven fabric produced on the dobby loom, characterised by small geometric patterns and extra texture in the cloth. The warp and weft threads may be the same colour or different. Satin threads are particularly effective in this kind of weave as their texture will highlight the pattern.[failed verification]
Dobby usually features a simple, repeated geometric pattern.
Polo shirts are usually made with dobby. Piqué fabrics are a type of dobby construction.
