Jacquard velvets (wool)
Jacquard velvets are fine and decorative fabrics that combine the luxurious characteristics of velvet with the complexity of jacquard designs. These fabrics are made using the jacquard weaving technique, which allows for the creation of elaborate and complex designs that are incorporated directly into the fabric.
Jacquard weaving is a mechanical weaving technique that uses a special loom called a jacquard loom. This loom is programmable and can control each individual weft thread individually, allowing you to create intricate and repetitive patterns, such as flowers, leaves, geometric figures and other sophisticated decorations.
Jacquard velvets are often used to furnish high quality interiors, such as sofas, armchairs, cushions, curtains and upholstery, as well as to make elegant clothes and fabrics for special events.
These fabrics have a smooth, velvety surface, with the jacquard design blending seamlessly into the fabric.
Features of jacquard velvets include:
1. Elegance and luxury: Jacquard velvets are known for their beauty and the luxurious feel they give to rooms and garments.
2. Intricate designs: Thanks to the jacquard technique, velvets can have intricate and detailed patterns, making them unique and distinctive.
