Can I easily care for my jacquard comforter set?
One look at the gold and burgundy patterns of a jacquard luxury comforter set and you might say, "Hit the road, Jack," even if you're buying a damask or brocade discount comforter set for $40. You're afraid that the raised stitching on the floral pattern requires too much care. News flash from your bedding tip experts:
- Jacques is French for "James," and jacquard fabric was named after Joseph Jacquard, the inventer of a weaving process, not Jacques.
- Jacquard brocade or damask fabric for your bed comforter set is usually made of polyester fiber fill and cotton that you can dry-clean or machine-wash cold.
The pillow shams, bed skirt, and comforter in your jacquard luxury comforter set deserve careful handling, but you don't have to banish them faster than you can say the Left Bank. You can enjoy your elegant bedding comforter set like you do that fine Bordeaux wine--and like that red full-bodied Bordeaux, you can let your jacquard comforter set breathe.
