Jacquard Fabrics

Jacquard fabrics feature a raised pattern that is woven onto the fabric. It is a category of fabric that is named for the process of weaving that creates it. Thus, jacquard is not a type of material but a style of weaving and a number of different fibers are commonly used to create jacquard textiles with varying drape-ability and durability depending on the fibers used. Accademia Firenze uses primarily silk or cotton to create jacquard textiles. Popular designs include damasks, florals, and geometric patterns. Jacquard weaving is created by adding an attachment to a mechanical loom which allows independent warp threads to be raised creating a textured pattern. This lends increased versatility and diversity to the weaving process. Both the technique and the loom attachment are named for their inventor: Joseph Marie Jacquard (1752-1834). This French weaver and merchant is credited with one of the most important advancements in the history of programmed weaving as his “Jacquard loom” made textured patterned fabrics accessible to a much wider audience than ever before.
