From the French 'crin' (horsehair) and 'lin' (linen). Originally a term for a textile made of horsehair invented by a Frenchman, Monsieur Oudinot-Lutel in 1829, it was soon made of horsehair and cotton, and by 1840 consisted of horsehair warp and wool weft. It was used for making stiff under-petticoats to support and expand the skirt, and the term soon became used for the petticoat itself.
