What is bouclé fabric?
Bouclé (meaning curled or looped in French) is made with two strands of yarn combined with different tensions applied on each to create the loops and forming a textured, curly, knotted bouclé yarn which can be manufactured as either tight or loose curls.
It was first created in the 1940s, when Florence Knoll asked industrial designer Eero Saarinen to design a chair that she could “really curl up in". The result was the famous Saarinen’s Womb Chair, debuted in 1948.
Bouclé fabric was later adopted by various fashion houses most notably Chanel for their famous Chanel jackets and suits.
