Warp printing is a fabric production method which combines textile printing and weaving to create a distinctively patterned fabric, usually in silk.[1] The warp threads of the fabric are printed before weaving to create a softly blurred, vague pastel-coloured pattern.[1][2] It was particularly fashionable in the eighteenth century for summer wear.[2]

The silk and taffeta fabrics produced by this technique have a variety of names, including chiné,[1] Pompadour taffeta (after Madame de Pompadour) and chiné à la branche.[2] Chiné velvet was also possible, although the technique was very difficult and expensive and only made in a few places in France in the eighteenth century.[3]
