When someone mentions design or interiors, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? For most of us it would be along the lines of patterns, shades, clothing, and home décor and so on. Although a majority of us might have a generic idea of the patterns and might get to know about what is trending either through our own research or through word of mouth, there are some that we might not be aware of overall, let alone the details and the trends surrounding it. One such pattern is the jacquard weave.
It is quite commonly seen and yet we might not be familiar with the details or the name. The pattern is a simple yet complex one which gives an end result of beautifully woven fabric - be it curtains, bedsheets or clothing. The jacquard weave is one that never really goes out of trend. Let us take a look at what exactly the weave is and the different kinds of jacquard.
A specially woven fabric, using a particular loom, the jacquard weave can be done using a variety of fabric like cotton, polyester, silk, etc. The pattern is woven into the fabric with the loom and sometimes may even give a raised appearance on the cloth, not much unlike emboss. The motif on the weave is usually of a different colour than the rest of the fabric. However, some might use motifs/images of the same shade, but might be of a different material. Let us proceed to take a glimpse of the different types of Jacquards used in interior design.
Fresco is a satin weave that is done on the fabric, giving it a unique vibrant feel, similar to that of a painting. The shine and radiance that the soft yet rich shade brings out gives your space a rich look and feel.
Drawing inspiration from nature and its depictions, Vilaas gives the room a colourful and exquisite look and is perfect to use for festive seasons when you want your interiors to give out a lively vibe.
Originally, a Tepee is a type of conical tent used by the Native Americans. The tent was usually made of cloth, canvas or animal skin balanced on a frame of poles. This fabric would give out some warm and cosy vibes. The Tepee also brings out some fun and playful looks to the space.
The Batahla is an intricately woven silk jacquard that creates a beautiful print-like effect with multiple wefts. The weaves in the fabric add an interesting look and the floral design gives it a chic look.
The Madagascar evokes a larger-than-life vibe and works in any kind of setting. If big and bold patterns are your thing, then the Madagascar jacquard is definitely one you should consider. It also brings a tropical and bright feel to the room.
