Baize is a coarse, woollen cloth most commonly used on pool tables, cabinets, gaming tables and for lining drawers. Baize Fabric is a heavy and durable material, often confused with felt. The term Baize is of French origin however, the fabric itself originates from England. As it has a heavy nap, Baize Fabric prevents objects from slipping which is why it is a popular choice for gaming tables. Baize is most commonly a green fabric but is available in other colours as well, including red and is often used in the Roman Catholic Church as altar cloth protectors, and in museums for lining of display cases.
