Baize is a high quality woven fabric that is ideal for use on card and poker tables. It is also used for snooker, pool and billiard tables, pool tables and in crafting. It is extremely hard wearing.
Baize is not very fine, which creates some friction (the perfect amount for snooker balls). It's also great for picking up cards and board game pieces - which is great for games like Mombassa and Ticket to Ride.
