- n. A term, historical, borrowed from the French "marceline". It denotes a taffeta-silk fabric, especially used for dress linings. Its threads, crossing in groups in a two-pass report, are individually introduced in the meshes of the heights so that they are fixed exactly and parallel in their crosses with the weft. The result is a grain fabric somewhat more pronounced than plain taffeta.
- dobble taffeta
