Posted on October 28 2015
So much have we seen the Jacquard fabric. A pretty variety of fabric it is and we all love wearing saree made of this fabric. It’s unique in its own way but little do we know about its origin. Jacquard fabric is named after Joseph Marie Jacquard, the person who invented this fabric. We sure are thankful to him!
The Jacquard fabric is made by a special loom called the jacquard loom. It was invented in the year 1801. It loom was defined as mechanical loom. It was controlled by punch cards. There are two types in Jacquard, brocade and damask.
This fabric defines elegance and is a member of the silk family. Jacquard, comes in different designs and patterns which are unique, it is also a light weight fabric. After being light in weight it still have the classic look of silk that makes it an ideal option to wear on occasions.
The early punch cards with holes were required to create patterns on the fabric. However, the loom revolutionized the production of this patterned fabric. It was easy to produce and also cheaper.
However, to identify brocade and damsak is quite easy. Damsak is reversible, the patterns are mirror image of each other. It is perfect on one side and messed up on the other, than you call be sure it a Brocatelle.
Here are a few brocade sarees that we have to offer:
