WHAT IS JACQUARD FABRIC?
Jacquard is a weaving technique that makes it possible to weave complex patterns into fabric. Jacquard fabrics are made of high-quality and durable materials. Multi-layered and complex weaves together with different materials create dashing texture and durability for the fabric.
The jacquards we use come from France, from the Lyon area. The factory specializes in Jacquard fabrics and has lived in rhythm with its looms for 85 years.
WHERE DID THE NAME JACQUARD COME FROM?
The name Jacquard comes from the inventor of the weaving technique, Mr. Joseph Marie Jacquard. In 1804, the French Jacquard designed a weaving machine that could be used to weave unprecedented decorative fabrics. The invention renewed the traditions of textile design, and this mechanism is considered one of the most important weaving inventions.
At first, the weaving technique was popular for wall hangings, upholstery and interior decoration, and over time it also developed for clothing use. For a long time, the expensive material was the privilege of the upper class, but as fashion and the textile industry developed and industrialized, Jacquard fabric became more common. Today, Jacquard fabrics are also widely used in clothing and accessories, but it is still considered luxurious.
WASHING & IRONING
Jacquard is a luxurious material that will serve for years if properly cared for. Here are a few tips for proper maintenance of jacquard fabric. It is important to avoid rubbing the fabric. Be especially careful with bag buckles and jewelry. Often, instead of washing, airing and steaming is enough to refresh the garment.
The stains should be cleaned locally with a damp cloth and mild detergent instead of washing the entire garment. Jacquard products can be washed in the washing machine with a delicate wash program at 30 degrees with a gentle detergent. We recommend turning the product inside out and using it in a laundry bag.
The garment should be placed on a hanger to dry, which helps keep the garment's posture and shape. Ironing should be done from the wrong side with one point.
