About Simonis Cloth
Simonis is the oldest company in the billiard industry and the only textile mill in the world dedicated solely to the production of cloth for pool, carom and snooker. Our specialization enables us to maintain the precision and consistency that have become the reference standards for the industry.
Still under the direction of the Simonis family (currently managed by Marc Simonis), our craftsmen in Verviers, Belgium have spent generations raising the weaving of premium quality worsted wool cloth to an art form, ultimately developing superior table coverings that have defined the needs of carom, pool and snooker. To this day, the distinctive quality of Simonis cloth has never been duplicated.
Simonis has always been and we remain the innovators to the billiard industry, and we have always been the standard to which all other cloths try to compare. Manufacturing superior quality cloths since 1680, and with more industry firsts than virtually all other billiard cloth manufacturers combined, you can rest assured that Simonis will remain at the forefront of billiard cloth manufacturing and technology, and will continue to provide the truest playing cloth.
Simonis cloth delivers the most accurate play. For generations, Simonis has focused on what makes for the most accurate, most consistent play and we have woven it into our cloth.
