Jacquard Cards

The fabrics Maruca bags are made from are technically referred to as Jacquards. Jacquard is a fabric with versatile yarns along with intricate pattern capabilities that are distinct from other patterned textiles. This is because the pattern is woven rather than printed onto cloth. A French weaver and merchant, Joseph Marie Jacquard, was the inventor of the Jacquard loom attachment in 1804. His invention became one of the most important of the Industrial Revolution.

Maruca Design relishes in working with this caliber of textile. Jacquards are standardly used in the furniture industry, so the performance of the fabric is heartier, giving the bags lasting durability. In designing, we use a variety of variegated, textured and voluminous yarns giving the fabrics an interesting weave relief effect and vibrant hues. The result is an artsy and contemporary appearance. The fiber content of our fabrics consists of synthetics, cottons and rayons. Jacquards tend to be more costly due to the fiber content and loom set-up time. We work closely with USA mills who are environmentally sensitive to the disposal of any waste. In fact, many of the warp yarns are spun from recycled plastic bottles.

Maruca Design is observing a returning desire by consumers who appreciate quality fabrication. However, the fashion industry tends to have a fickle reputation, which is transient, passing, disposable and trend driven. Maruca, on the other hand, does not adhere to this fleeting philosophy. Our mission is to create bags that are timeless, long lasting and cherished.
