Chino cloth is a kind of twill fabric, usually made primarily from cotton. Originally used in British and French military uniforms in the mid-1800s, today it is also used to make civilian clothing. There is even a style of pants, "chinos", named after the fabric, though sometimes they are referred to as "khakis", especially in the US.
