corduroy definition and meaning

What is "corduroy"?

Corduroy is a type of fabric that is distinguished by its distinct ridges or "cords" that run vertically down the length of the material. It is made by weaving together cotton, wool, or synthetic fibers with a series of raised parallel ridges, which are then cut to create a pile that is soft and fuzzy to the touch. Corduroy is a durable and warm fabric that is commonly used for clothing such as jackets, pants, and skirts, as well as for home decor items like upholstery and curtains. It is available in a range of colors and textures, and can be woven in different weights and densities to suit different applications. While corduroy has a casual and comfortable feel, it can also be dressed up for more formal occasions, making it a versatile and timeless fabric that has remained popular for generations.
