Moire

Mechanical finishing process in which fabric is passed between engraved rolls under heavy pressure to create a watermark appearance. The look is created by the different reflections of light by the crushed and uncrushed marks in the fabric. Can also be achieved by passing two layers of the same fabric as a “sandwich” through the calender.
