Terry is a type of fabric characterized by its soft, pile-forming loops covering both sides, commonly used for making towels. The name "Terry" may have originated from the French word "tiré," which means "drawn" and is the past participle of the verb "tirer," to draw. This could be a reference to the process of drawing the loops out to create the pile fabric. Another possibility is that the name Terry is a variant of the word "terret," which is from the 18th century and has an unknown origin.
