History of corduroy fabric
Fabric historians believe that corduroy originated from an Egyptian fabric called fustian, which was developed in approximately 200 AD. Like corduroy, fustian fabric features raised ridges, but this type of fabric is much rougher and less closely woven than modern corduroy.
Textile manufacturers in England developed modern corduroy in the 18th century. The source of this fabric’s name remains debated, but it’s highly unlikely that at least one widely popularized etymological theory is correct: Some sources suggest that the word “corduroy” comes from the French corduroy (cord of the king) and that courtiers and nobility in France commonly wore this fabric, but no historical data back up this position.
Instead, it is more likely that British textile manufacturers adopted this name from “ kings-cordes,” which certainly did exist during the early 19th century. It’s also possible that this name draws its origins from the British surname Corduroy.
Regardless of why this fabric is called “corduroy,” it became highly popular among all strata of British society throughout the 1700s. By the 19th century, however, velvet had replaced corduroy as the most sumptuous fabric available to the elite, and corduroy received the derogatory nickname “poor man’s velvet.”
