In recent years, many sewists thought jacquard was primarily a colourful knit fabric. Yet a classic jacquard is woven. In 1805, a resourceful Frenchman named Jacquard developed a small device for the mechanical loom, with the help of which individual warp threads could be removed from the weaving process in a quasi-controlled manner. Instead of always passing the weft threads nicely above and below the warp threads, it was thus possible to skip areas. This made it possible to weave more complex patterns into the fabric.
The woven jacquards by the French design label Studio Walkie Talkie are a new interpretation of this old class of fabric. They are made in France and extremely modern and stylish.
The Confetti design in the variant Drive is made of recycled cotton, lurex yarns and polyester. It was woven from several blue yarns and copper threads. Depending on the side used, the effect is either a navy coloured jacquard with blush accents or a cross-striped, pastel fabric with dark blue elements.
At 250g/m2, the fabric is slightly heavier than other fabrics from this brand, but still extremely soft and definitely light enough for dresses or skirts. Of course, you can also use the fabric for bags or interior accessories.
