Moire (pronounced mwa:'rei) from the Arabic mukhayyar meaning "chosen." Typically, moire fabric was a textile of silk but today, can be of cotton or a synthetic fiber. The moire fabric pattern is known as an interference pattern. It is created of two sets of vertical or horizontal lines, laid over each other at an angle. The pattern can also be caused by the two sets being of a slightly different size when laid over each other. Creating these patterns often results in one of two possible outcomes, a dulling of the fabric or a deep luster effect.
