First attested in the mid 17th century. Most likely borrowed from Early Modern Dutch stof, from Middle Dutch stoffe, from Old French estophe, estoffe, from estoffer (to provide what is necessary, equip, stuff) (French étoffer and étouffer), from Frankish *stopfōn, *stoppōn (to cram, plug, stuff), from Proto-Germanic *stuppōną (to clog up, block, fill). Compare English stuff.
