What is a Jacquard fabric?

The Jacquard method for a classy, retro texture

Jacquard is a type of fabric that is often used for home decoration. What makes it special is the design, which is extremely complex and rich in detail, woven into the fabric itself, rather than being printed or embroidered.

It is a rather old process, dating back to the early 1800s, when Mr Jacquard invented a machine that wove intricate fabrics with beautiful patterns, saving time and labour.

Sophisticated taste is able to satisfy the needs of many. Jacquard weaving is still a popular technique in the world of fashion and interior design. The fabrics are easily recognisable because they are characterised by distinctive textures and patterns.

What does Jacquard mean? The characteristics of the fabric

Jacquard fabric is a weaving method in which the fabric pattern is not printed or drawn, but woven directly onto the fabric.

This type of fine fabric is characterised by its rich and complex weave. The weave is obtained by using a special loom called a Jacquard loom. The Jacquard loom is a normal loom to which a machine is connected that automatically moves the individual warp threads. It is probably the most important invention in the textile industry that has enabled the production of even very complex fabrics.
