Jacquard Fabric: Defined & Explained

October 7, 2009

Jacquard

A fabric with an elaborately woven pattern produced on a Jacquard loom, brainchild of J. M. Jacquard in the early 1800’s. The loom allows for more intricate non-linear patterns to be woven into a fabric, rather than printed on its surface, and is usually represented by a raised pattern in relief against the background. Brocade and damask are both examples of Jacquard fabrics.

A Jacquard fabric is versatile and may be used for sport or dress shirts.
