Also known as mattress ticking or pillow ticking, cotton ticking fabric is tightly woven for durability. It was originally used to prevent down feathers from poking through the fabric when is was used to cover mattresses and bed pillows.

Cotton ticking is no longer restricted to a utility fabric and has now found other uses, such as quilt backing and other bedding. It has become very trendy in interior decorating styles intending to evoke a homespun or industrial aesthetic.

Contemporary uses for ticking include furniture upholstery, cushion covers, tablecloths, decorative basket liners and curtains.
