Highly decorative jacquard fabric has the design created during the weaving process rather than being printed or dyed onto the material. The result is a rich fabric with a design that will not flake or fade off. Mr. Joseph Marie Jacquard (1752-1834) invented the jacquard loom in 1801, which automated the production of fabrics including unlimited varieties of patterns in the weave.
