Jacquard

Material:

Jacquard fabrics are not only suitable for classic decorations like curtains or pillows. The firm fabric is also strong enough for light upholstery work. Due to its production process patterns appear on both sides with inversed colours. This type of fabric also allows for delicate and complex patterns with a large pattern repeat which is great for exclusive decorative ideas. The fabric is very firm and stays in its shape, while at the same time being very soft and versatile. Jacquard tissue is made on a special jacquard loom. They can be made from natural fibres as silk, wool, cotton, linen, or from synthetic fibres like viscose, polyester, or blends.

 

The history of jacquard fabrics:

Joseph-Marie Jacquard comes from a family of weavers living in Lyon and inherited his parents' weaving shop when they passed away. He had to learn the arduous work of pulling the pattern threads, but never really grew to like the craft. Instead, around 1805 this inventive silk weaver developed the jacquard loom. Its principle made it possible to mechanically produce complex and flawless patterns. Textile production became a lot more efficient and cheaper, replacing individual artisan craft works by bulk commodities in the process.

 

Care instructions for jacquard fabrics:

You can wash some jacquard fabrics yourself. To make the fabric last longer and look better however, professional dry cleaning is recommended. If you do wash it yourself, please adjust your iron to the sensitivity of the fibres used. Synthetic fibres should only be ironed at low temperatures, silk and wool can be ironed at medium heat, while cotton and linen can sustain higher temperature. We recommend you to iron the back without pressing. If you want to iron the front, do use an ironing cloth.

 

How to work with jacquard fabrics:

Before cutting a fabric you should always check for the direction of the pattern and adjust your cuts accordingly. As always, the needle size depends on the quality of the fabric: fine jacquard fabrics require needle sizes of 70-80, while heavy fabrics require 90. The stitch length depends on the volume of the fabric and varies from 2 to 3 mm.
