What is Jacquard Fabric?

Jacquard woven fabric is produced on a special weaving loom fitted with a jacquard patterning mechanism, it can produce a waffle weave effect and other thick and three-dimensional textures. The weave is named after the Frenchman Joseph Marie Jacquard who invented the patterning mechanism in 1801. Fabrics with a jacquard weave are generally stronger and more resilient than those with basic weaves. They are also usually lustrous (depending on the fibre type) with intricate patterns and designs.
