The world of fabrics can be a tricky place to navigate! With damasks, scrolls, jacquards and trails, it’s sometimes hard to keep track of what means what. So today I wanted to shed some light one of our most popular fabric styles: the Jacquard.
Originally named after French inventor, Joseph Marie Jacquard in1801, a Jacquard fabric consists of an intricately woven pattern that is raised from the background as opposed to simply printed on. A true jacquard fabric is made using a special Jacquard loom, but the jacquard style or effect can be created in other ways too, giving the same raised look as the jacquard.
This style is great for adding texture and interest to your home textiles. Let’s explore a few of our top Jacquard style fabrics that could add that something special to your home…
