Black jacquard fabric with a floral and botanical pattern. Jacquard is a type of cloth featuring an intricate pattern woven into the warp on a special mechanical loom, rather than printed on the surface. It was a French weaver Joseph-Marie Jacquard who invented this technology in 1804, so it was named after him. Any jacquard fabric is all about the pattern, which looks that unique because of the way it is applied. Very often, if you look at the back of the cloth, long floats can be found; these are threads used to produce the pattern, and it tells you straight away that you are dealing with this material.
Design — the pattern features a floral and botanical pattern on a black background. Before the invention of the jacquard loom, such patterns were made by hand and involved a lot of labor and time. Nowadays, highly detailed motifs are woven automatically in a much shorter time. The secret is in controlling warp yarns. The jacquard loom creates a pattern by selecting and lifting warp yarns.

This jacquard fabric is too delicate, with metallic yarn, so dry-cleaning is the best strategy to keep it safe. Do not wring this fabric. Instead, let it dry on a hanger or lay it flat on a table, away from direct sunlight. If you choose to press jacquard, it is recommended to do it from the wrong side not to damage the pattern.
