[pop-lin] /ˈpɒp lɪn/
a finely corded fabric of cotton, rayon, silk, or wool, for dresses, draperies, etc.
type of corded fabric, 1710, from French papeline “cloth of fine silk and worsted” (1660s), probably from Provençal papalino, fem. of papalin “of or belonging to the pope,” from Medieval Latin papalis “papal” (see papal). The reference is to Avignon, papal residence during the schism 1309-1408 (and regarded as a papal town until 1791), which also was a center of silk manufacture. Influenced in English by Poperinghe, town in Flanders where the fabric was made (but from 18c. the primary source was Ireland).
