With a recent resurgence of neutral and tonal aesthetics, bouclé fabrics have become a design sensation in the textile world of bedding, furniture and even fashion. Offering a warm, textured and tactile experience that many other fabrics don’t offer, bouclés add depth and subtle pattern and a wide range of colors and subtle patterns.
The term bouclé (pronounced "boo-clay") in French means “loop” or “curl”. This fabric is created from a series of yarn loops which gives it a signature nubby yet fleecy look that is soft to the touch. While you may not be familiar with the name bouclé, it’s likely you’re familiar with it’s application in some category of design. From curvy mid-century chairs, to cozy accent pillows to elegant outerwear like jackets and sweaters, bouclé is chic and modern but never trendy.
