Jacquard, Brocade, Damask and others

Jacquard is available in a variety of fibers and refers to a group of fabrics woven on a Jacquard Loom with one or more extra sets of yarns to create a permanent fabric design on the surface.

  • select Jacquards for their beauty, not their durability
  • use for patterns with simple lines and small details
  • easily fray so be sure to use weights or superfine pins when cutting
  • use a lining to get the desired shape and to elimatinate pulls on the reverse of the fabric
  • Dry clean only and store on padded hangers
