Toile

Toile is the name of a fabric that entered the English language around the 12th century from a French word meaning "linen cloth" or "canvas"—particularly cloth or canvas for painting on. The word toile can refer to the fabric itself, a test garment (generally) sewn from the same material, or a type of surface decoration (traditionally) printed on the same fabric.
