Le Jacquard Français
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.
In 2010, Le Jacquard Français was awarded the EPV (Living Heritage Enterprise) certification for its excellence in craftsmanship and industry.
AN ETHICAL AND RESPONSIBLE PRODUCTION
Jacquard Français benefits from the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 label on all the 100% cotton products, which attests to the limited use of substances hazardous to health and the environment during the manufacture of textiles and at all stages of processing. As for linen products, Jacquard Français holds the Masters of Linen® certificate. This is a registered trademark and a seal of excellence 100% "Made in" Europe. Jacquard Français commitment to the production of quality European linen is also expressed through the partnership with the Terre de Lin cooperative, in which linen growers are committed to preserving a specific know-how by developing practices in terms of production, respect for the environment and social commitment.
Jacquard Français has always been to make products that last. The quality of the materials and dyes used allows Jacquard Français to guarantee a stable quality over time, without deformation of the fabrics or fading of the patterns. Le Jacquard Français collections are distinguished by the fineness of the weaving and the richness of the patterns; they have stood the test of time with elegance as their primary identity. Jacquard Français products can thus be transmitted from generation to generation.
