Tex­tile mak­ing is an an­cient craft, with a his­tory al­most as old as mankind it­self. Jacquard tex­tile is one kind of wo­ven tex­tile, known as a high­grade tex­tile with high-tech, in­tri­cate and de­tailed wo­ven-in mo­tifs. The fi­bres that are gen­er­ally used for mak­ing such fab­ric in­clude cot­ton fi­bre, rayon fi­bre, li­nen fi­bre, polyester -or blends of other syn­thetic fi­bres. This tex­tured fab­ric has vary­ing drape-abil­ity and dura­bil­ity de­pend­ing on the fi­bres used.

The sky is the limit when it comes to weav­ing jac­quards. There is a lot to play with in terms of de­sign­ing, use of mul­ti­ple threads of vary­ing thick­ness, etc. There are any num­ber of pos­si­bil­i­ties and va­ri­eties. Re­fer­ring to price range one can get prod­ucts priced from 1 USD to 100 USD. You name it and we will give it to you. There are dif­fer­ent types of jac­quards such as da­mask, jacquard taffeta, flat jac­quards, etc. Pop­u­lar jacquard de­signs in­clude damasks, flo­rals, and geo­met­rics.

Jacquard is the epit­ome of glam­our, op­u­lence and so­phis­ti­ca­tion. Fab­rics can com­pletely change a space, and none can do so more than the beauty and match­less grace of jacquard. Jac­quards, damasks, and linens are par­tic­u­larly hot right now be­cause th­ese pat­terns can res­onate bril­liantly with the in­te­ri­ors. The best part is that this works just as well in a for­mal set­ting as a ca­sual and re­laxed one.

Talk­ing about the colour, Beige is never to be for­got­ten be­cause it is such a re­li­able color. Beige never fights – it hap­pily goes along with ev­ery­thing. The color range of beige is vast, from pale off-whites through tans and tau­pes and ev­ery­thing in be­tween. Say­ing Think Bold means, there will al­ways be an at­trac­tion to bright, vi­brant color. Whether used as a bold, brash state­ment or for play­ful bits of con­trast and drama, it is all about choice of colours. To take it to the next level, mix­ing and match­ing is a strat­egy that never fails to cre­ate an in­spired space. No mat­ter what the color choice, blend­ing and mix­ing stripes, pat­terns, over­sized flo­rals, and other bold state­ments make the most out of any ba­sic de­sign plat­form. Use self-pat­terned ver­sions for un­der­stated el­e­gance or pat­terned ones to cre­ate a state­ment. Jacquard fab­ric is great cur­tain ma­te­rial. There are lots of dif­fer­ent de­signs and colours to choose from. You can get flo­ral jacquard fab­ric as well as self­pat­terned ver­sions which are great if you want to add tex­ture with­out adding colour.

Look­ing at fab­rics can be a dizzy­ing af­fair. With a zil­lion dif­fer­ent op­tions, pre­sented in books so big you could bench­press them, it’s easy to get over­whelmed and dis­cour­aged when shop­ping for up­hol­stery.

‘Think bold! There are so many ways to use the col­ors, tex­tures, and pat­terns of this grace­ful ma­te­rial to cre­ate a cheer­ful, play­ful, and fun am­bi­ence with­out sac­ri­fic­ing dra­matic el­e­gance.’
