Let’s talk about Bouclé….The fabric of the moment

The History of Bouclé


Bouclé fabric made its debut in the late 1940s when Florence Knoll requested Eero Saarinen to design a chair that she could really “curl up in”. Bouclé definitely is a fabric perfect for curling up in, Bouclé’s irregular texture and appearance make it arguably one of the most centred materials in fashion and furniture.

Fashion designer Coco Chanel began using this rough textured wool tweed in the early 1930’s. Coco Chanel started experimenting with Bouclé in the 1950’s when she created the iconic Bouclé for the House of Chanel, still present to this very day. As well as being used in fashion they are now commonly used in interiors.

Bouclé derives from the French word curled or ringed. Bouclé is one of our favourite fabrics as you know we love anything French here at Mafille!
