Plush fabric – cuddly soft and in fur optic
The Plush is so to speak the big brother of the Velvet. No wonder, because after all they are both incredibly soft. The biggest difference is the height of the fibre pile: While it is relatively small in Velvet, the fibre pile of Plush fabric can be a few centimetres high and look similar to real hair or fur.
This is especially important when Plush is used in imitation animals. The probably most famous protagonist among the soft toys is the teddy bear, which owes its name to the former American president Theodore Roosevelt. Through a caricature, which was created in connection with a hunting trip of Roosevelt and showed him with a small bear, the animal became a symbolic figure.
