- Jacquard (Fabric) : Jacquard refers to the type of high-quality patterned fabric that is woven or made (from a specific loom which originated in 1801 in France) to create the effect of an intricate pattern or p rint. Originally named after French inventor Joseph-Marie Jacquard who invented a loom capable of producing this fabric. It is a very rich, somewhat heavier fabric often used for corsets and other garments requiring extra strength.

Jacquard also refers to a decorative design which is woven into the fabric on a jacquard loom forming a slightly raised decorative area. These designs can range from basic florals to very intricate patterns.

Jacquard is sometimes referred to as Brocade or Damask
