Product description

Product description

This black brocade is a beautiful, opulent fabric created using the jacquard technique, which makes the production of highly detailed, woven patterns possible. Its intense colors, effective combination of matte and luster, and tactile surface, put it in a class of its own. Historically, brocade has always numbered among prestige fabrics, and that remains true to this day.

Our brocade is woven of very fine threads (the warp is polyester, the weft rayon) but is sturdy, with a moderately crisp hand, making it a good choice for tailored patterns and garments that have to hold their shape. Use it for formal and wedding gowns, skirts, jackets, and evening bags and clutches. In everyday wear it excels in pencil skirts, trousers, or jackets. Menswear applications include ties and bow ties, vests, blazers, and dinner jackets. It is a classic for home decor (pillowcases, tablecloths, curtains) and a go-to for corsets and historical and theatrical costumes.

Brocade is easy to sew, just keep in mind its tendency to fray (widen your seam allowance) and propensity for loose threads. Choose a sturdier lining such as rayon lining or silk satin or silk serge. If you want your final garment to be washable, launder or steam shrink the fabric before cutting.

Care

We recommend dry cleaning this fabric at a reliable dry cleaner. Hand washing (30°C/86°F) will cause slight shrinkage and crimping. Unlike its silk cousin, this brocade will not soften when laundered. Press on the back using the synthetics setting; if the fabric has been pre-shrunk, you may steam it.
