Le Jacquard Francais
Le Jacquard Français is located in Gérardmer, France, which has been an important production site for textiles since 1888. The term “jacquard” refers to the specific weaving technique used to create this beautiful damask, which features creative and colorful patterns visible on both sides.
The technique was developed by 19th-century French weaver Joseph-Marie Jacquard, whose innovations made it possible to weave high-quality damask fabric for the world market. Weavers at Le Jacquard Français operate their looms using a harness that makes it possible to combine various weaves into the same piece of fabric, thus creating the colorful, distinctive and inspired patterns that have made the company world famous.
Elegance That Defies Convention
The first collection of Le Jacquard Français was launched in 1978 in collaboration with the designer Primrose Bordier. Ms. Bordier turned convention on its head when she introduced bright and playful colors to the world of household linens. Prior to Ms. Bordier’s work with Jacquard Français, household linens were almost always plain white.
