A chamois, often known as a 'shammy', originally referred to a kind of antelope common in Europe. It was from the skin of this antelope that the first chamois leather was made. It was found that when this leather was impregnated with cod oil the material gained great absorbency. At first this leather was used extensively in glovemaking, and especially in soft white gloves for carriage footmen. Thus the first chamois predate the car itself.
Nowadays chamois is used to refer to any high absorbency cloth for polishing, particularly of cars. In fact, the synthetic cloths available now have greater resistance to modern chemicals, and of course means that no rare antelopes need be killed to wash your car.
