A Modern Company Built on Over Three Centuries of Experience
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. Only Simonis cloth actually improves the surface of slate. Slate is only as good as what covers it... because the balls touch the cloth, not the slate. Table manufacturers are very particular about the slate they offer on their tables, and it only makes sense to cover that slate with the most accurate cloth.
Over three centuries of experience enables Simonis to craft such a consistent cloth.
Built to Play the Best
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. Simonis is considered the best overall value in billiard cloth because of its durability and unmatched playing characteristics.
We make our own cloth in our own mill
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.
The Ultimate in Specialization
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, pyramid and snooker. Our specialization enables us to maintain the precision and consistency that have become the reference standards for the billiard industry.
Simonis continues to define the standards for the industry
Providing a flawless, defect-free playing surface is why Simonis Cloth has been on tournament tables all around the world for generations and why it is the perfect choice for commercial rooms and home tables alike.
"Simonis is not a common felt, it is carefully and precisely woven fabric, specifically designed to enhance your game by allowing the ball to roll straight and true while maintaining consistent speed and spin."
There is a reason that all other cloths compare themselves to Simonis.
Simonis cloth has been around since the beginnings of the game.
We take care to maintain the very best characteristics that have evolved over the centuries and these characteristics are what define our cloth. In a world where most companies are trying to cut corners and produce "adequate" products, Simonis goes the extra distance to produce truly exceptional cloth.
The care that goes into the manufacturing of our cloth produces accuracy and consistency that make Simonis cloth the reference standard for all cue sports cloth worldwide.
