The name Duffle derives from the town called Duffel in Belgium where the material originates. It was once traditionally a thick coarse woollen fabric used for Duffle coats, which became popular because of the British Royal Navy. It was made into a camel coloured garment as an item of warm clothing during World War 1. Due to large stocks of post-war military surplus coats, the Duffle coat was then sold to the general public in the 1950s and 1960s.
