Definition: Bengaline

Apple Green Bengaline from BBJ Linen

ben·ga·line  (bngg-ln) n.   A fabric having a crosswise ribbed effect made of silk, wool, or synthetic fibers.


[French, from Bengale, Bengal.]
Putting a modern edge to decor is always fun. Bengalines help you incorporate the soft feel of a fabric, with your choice of sheen or matte, without splurging on other costlier linens like lamours.  It’s ribbed texture is a nice difference from a lamour, but is not a knit fabric, but a woven one.  Bengaline is used in everything from wedding gowns to linens to tent lining.
