A term describing both a weave and a fabric type -- a rich, heavy, jacquard woven fabric. Relief patterns, typically in a floral or paisley motif, emphasized by contrasting colors and surfaces produced by the filter thread. True brocades have “floating” yarns on the reverse side, while fine brocades often have threads of real gold or silver.
Very similar to a flame stitch, but found mostly in multi-purpose weight prints. The chevron is not an embroidered flame stitch, but is composed of zigzag lines that are printed onto the fabric. May be found in an array of colors and printed on different fabric grounds, ranging from cotton, linen, rayon and polyester.
