Le Jacquard Français has pioneered many of the textile industry’s design, technology and inventions for the production of fine linens. Le Jacquard Français is 100% woven in France, still using traditional weaving methods. Fine combed yarns lend Le Jacquard Français fabrics an incomparable sheen and enable even difficult patterns to be executed with precision. It has earned an international reputation for its quality, refinement and colours.

A reference in the most prestigious points of sale, in France and worldwide, the French brand boasts unequaled international standing.

The art of weaving

From spooling the fibre to final construction, weaving and finishing, this eight-step expertise requires precise technique and an infinite sense of detail to produce the most beautiful creations.

For over 130 years, Jacquard Français have been committed to the artful preservation of the technique of jacquard weaving in France. Invented in the 19th century by Joseph-Marie Jacquard, it automates the weaving of a damask fabric. “Damask” is a fabric whose designs are visible on both the front and the back.

Today, thanks to their 54 Jacquard looms, the Jacquard Français House produces a very large number of original patterns, with remarkable precision and finesse.

Les Galeries Lafayette, Le Printemps, and Le Bon Marché in France, Harrods in London, El Corte Ingles in Spain, the KaDeWe in Germany, Casa Palacio in Mexico and Isetan in Japan are among the internationally famous stores which spread the prestige of Le Jacquard Français. Likewise, the brand has pride of place in numerous points of sale specialising in household linen, tableware, highend kitchen equipment, giftware and home decoration and, more recently, “gourmet” boutiques and concept stores.
