Boucle Fabric - Reigning The Globe of 2021

2021-03-15


Fabrics put life in any piece of furniture and they spread over your furniture like a second skin. For many years, the fabric has been the most effective texturing tool for decoration. Although some are classical, passed down from generation to generation like silk and rayon, some are the stars of the season - The Boucle Fabric.


           

Origin of The Fabric

The word boucle is derived from the language French which means “curled” or “ringed.”  Boucle is referred to as a yarn, made from a series of looped fiber.. Wool is the most common fiber to undergo the technique, though cotton, linen, and silk have also been used for achieving a similar finish. The fabric works great from the maintenance point of view. It requires gentle washing with cold water because of its delicacy in handling. It is easily cleanable and a tight weave is less likely to allow dirt, dust, and liquid to penetrate.

Boucle’s origin traces back to the 1940s,  when the renowned designer label, Coco Chanel launched the glorious “Boucle Jacket”.  In the decade following Saarinen’s curled-up release in the 1940s, boucle fabrics spread cross-category, becoming a staple of fashion couture houses and of the mid-century furniture designers.



Boucle for Interior Design

The fabric is widely used abroad, especially in countries with low temperatures. It is the most loved fabric for residential spaces. Since boucle is a warm fabric, it keeps the interiors a comfy and cozy space that resembles the emotions of a home. Boucle is a fabric that represents the contemporary face of designers. It is rough and earthly, yet comfy and trendy. 

While most of the previous fabric trends such as velvet have been giving the vibe of royalty, luxury, and elegance; boucle is a fabric that stands for a chic and modern finish. It hits off with people with an instant relatability of comfort and leisure. The popularity of this fabric is not just limited to the elite bandwagon but also fast catching up in the economical class.

Interior Applications

In interior design, boucle is commonly used for upholstery and throws. Boucle is also prominent in the fashion world where the silky fabric is used to make textured shirting, boucle wool coats, couture suiting, and other outerwear. Medium-weight boucle fabric is extremely versatile and has a wide variety of home decor uses. 

Soft Seating

Boucle is a great soft fabric that can be used to upholster sofas and chairs. The silky fabric pairs especially well with furniture pieces that have curved edges, since the soft curves complement the soft fabric.
