Description - Toile de Jouy by Melanie Riffel

In 1760, the Manufacture Royale de Jouy was founded in Jouy-en-Josas, near Paris, to produce printed cotton fabrics on French soil that could compete with the popular imported ones. Riffel and Rouart have drawn upon the rich collections at the Musee de la Toile de Jouy to produce this history of these textiles. The illustrations include original designs that are conserved in the museum, exceptional examples of Toile de Jouy clothing and furniture, documents relating to manufacture and to the founding company, and examples of contemporary uses of the textiles.
