An example of waffle fabric

Waffle fabric, or sometimes honeycomb fabric, is usually made of cotton or microfibre and is woven in a way which makes it very absorbent. The waffle weave also allows air to flow through the fabric so that it dries quickly. Waffle fabrics are made in a range of weights.

Waffle fabric is used for cleaning surfaces in industry. The surface of the fabric is textured rather like a culinary waffle, hence the name. This texture gives more surface area for absorption and cleaning than a normal flat surface. It is woven on a loom.
