Baize is a woven, wool product that looks a lot like felt but is much stronger. Made from a dense 80% wool/20% nylon it is heavy and durable Baize is a luxury, dense material being twice the density of the average felt, it weighs 340g/m² but it is just 1mm thick.
Baize is often used as a table cover or to cover snooker and pool tables as well as card tables being ideally suited to these uses as it does not fray,pill or easily tear. Customers have also found that if you print onto our baize it can make the perfect base for table games.
An unusual historical fact is that, 'the green baize door' (a door to which cloth had been tacked to deaden noise) in a house, often separated servants' quarters from the family's living accommodation, hence the phrase's usage as a metonym for domestic service..
Our baize is available in lengths of 1 metre or more.
