What LEGO clone is this?

It looks like LEGO, but I can't seem to find anything more.

Could you please help identifying this?

    Is this a lego clone brick? Do you have more pictures of other parts? Also, I'm not sure I understand the sentence in the question regarding fabric. Is there a reason you suspect this has something to do with fabric?

    I think this might be a bad translation from a non-native english speaker. "Fabric" could have been "Material" or even "sample" or "item". Especially the Fabric<->Material crossover is one that could easily be made by a Germanic language speaker.

  • Interestingly, Bayer used to produce test bricks on behalf of LEGO, and some of these had a B on their studs (apparently different letters indicated different stickiness or 'clutch' between bricks). That said, I don't think this is a Bayer brick.

  • @PhilB.: On the other hand, the German word "Fabrikat" means "brand"/"make", which can easily be mixed up with "fabric", as well. Aug 11 '19 at 1:45

I couldn't find anything with Google in any reasonable amount of time, but here are some things it isn't:

  • BanBao
  • Best-Lock
  • Cobi
  • K'nex
  • Kre-O
  • Lite Brix
  • Mega Bloks
  • Tyco Super Blocks
  • Sluban
  • Wange
  • NanoBlocks
  • PlayMobil
  • Star Diamond

Other than super obscure Chinese LEGO direct-steals, there aren't really any others.

But here is a legitimimate idea nowadays: They're printed. Face it, the top of each brick definitely has the trademark plastic lines of an untreated 3D -printer job. People are printing and/or selling bricks all the time these days!

And if you love them that much, you could have somebody make some for you!

    Isn't the top of the brick too uniform and shiny for a 3D-printed brick? Sep 3 '16 at 16:23

    @MarkStewart Not with standard acid treatment.
