- Cotton, woolen and blended matter with rough surface (jacquard, tapestry, peak)+
- Natural or synthetic (as well as blended options) fabrics with a porous surface (velor, artificial fur with a short and long pile, plush, velvet)+
- Synthetic fabrics made of polyester fibers (Velseloft, fleece, microfiber)+
- Silk and artificial fabric stuffing (atlas, brocade, polyester).
