Jacquard Houndstooth Fabric is a type of large, double-sided tapestry made from a tapestry of cloth. The name comes from the French word Jacquard meaning handkerchief or napkin. The cloth is woven and cut into strips that are then stitched together to make a fabric that can be used for either curtains or wall tapestries. Jacquard has become a popular material for wallpaper because it has a high degree of resistance to moisture. Because of this quality, the color will not fade with time, making it an ideal wall covering.
Jacquard has been around for many years and in its long history has been used for a variety of applications, among them, wall coverings and tapestries. The material is relatively easy to work with when compared to other materials used for wallpaper like vinyl and aluminum. Jacquard houndstooth fabric is not heavy, which makes it practical for many applications. Because the material is not difficult to work with, you do not have to worry about getting the right size, cut and bindery when purchasing this product. You can easily create a tapestry or wall covering that suits your tastes.
Another advantage of purchasing this type of fabric is that it is inexpensive and easy to care for. It is a good idea to wash the fabric just once or twice a month. If the fabric is used frequently then you should wash it more often. Simply use a gentle detergent and soap to wash and rinse the fabric to remove any dust or stains and to make it look as good as new.
Since the material is washable, you do not need to dry clean it. This is a major benefit when you consider the price of dry cleaning. Jacquard fabric is safe to use on all surfaces because it dries fairly quickly. The colors will not fade. Therefore you can choose a single tone or a combination of tones and colors to match your existing decor.
This material is very sturdy and durable. Many customers find that they can use the material for several years before it needs to be replaced. There is no fading of the material. You do not have to worry about it soiling or looking faded after you have had it several years.
The material is available in a number of sizes. You can buy the small squares and use them on wall panels or in tapestries. For a more substantial covering, you can use the medium square pieces and place them on half-inch centerpieces for an elegant effect.
