My tailor is having trouble finding silk grosgrain, so I thought I would do a search myself. One thing I noticed, though, is that the fabric sites that have a glossary of fabric types lists faille, but not grosgrain. Furthermore, they describe faille as having a ribbed texture, "like grosgrain ribbon." So are they the same thing, or are they just somewhat similar and grosgrain isn't listed on it's own because it isn't common?
