Toile de Jouy, 17th C. France. Toile-de-Jouy takes its name from the factory at Jouy-en-Josas, close to Versailles,where the technique of machine printing fabric using engraved copper plates was perfected in the mid 18th century. Invented by an Irish printer, this innovation allowed detailed pattern to be produced relatively inexpensively. These sprigs are taken from a Toile-de-Jouy print, embroidered in silk yarn on a gold silk ground.
