Cambie Boucle Fabric, Chalk

The annual list of interior trends in recent years clearly shows Boucle has become an indispensable part of home style, and even you have products made from Boucle in your home right now.
You may have heard of boucle fabric, but most people don't know that it's not made of wool, and many businesses even use it as a selling point to promote their products.
OK, let's look at the following points to understand what it is made of and why it is commonly believed to be made of wool.


What are the origins of Boucle, and how did this fabric emerge? Boucle originated in Europe, where it was a popular mid-century style. Boucle fabrics were initially made of wool. However, like most fabrics, this wool was costly, and eventually, designers found other ways to make Boucle fabrics, which combined materials such as polyester, linen, and cotton.

Boucle fabric became popular in the U.S in the 1940s. It happened that an architect asked a designer to make a chair that would allow someone to curl up on it. The designer, Eero Saarinen, designed an iconic chair that featured soft boucle fabric. The Womb chair by Eero led to the rise in popularity of boucle fabric. As a result, Boucle featured prominently in many furniture designs and later in clothing designs in the 1950s. It was first used by Coco Chanel, a famous fashion house in the mid-century. Many world-renowned fashion designers have used it from time to time since.


Now that you know what Boucle is, you are probably curious to know what it is made of.

Boucle fabric is actually made of a mixture of 70% polyester and 30% acrylic.
If you want to know in more detail how it is produced and its specific chemical composition, we recommend you to watch the video.


Although it is artificially imitated, it is not inferior to wool and has the following advantages, especially suitable for furniture decoration

  • Light and clean appearance, with good breathability.
  • Soft texture, light and transparent, smooth and elastic to the touch.
  • After high-temperature shrinkage treatment, not easy to deformation and wrinkle.
  • Good physical properties, high fiber strength, wear-resistant, long-lasting and durable.
  • Good chemical properties, alkali resistance, chemical resistance, insect resistance, and mold resistance.
  • Low cost and more vital plasticity.


    The Boucle is no longer really made of wool. It is an advanced material made from a mixture of several materials of fabric.
    Well, now that you know its actual composition, if a merchant claims that the boucle material used in its products is natural wool, please don't believe it; it's basically impossible, except in art galleries.
