I was looking at the different silk fabrics that could be used for bedding and clothing and I'm trying to find out the difference between the two. I know brocade is where they weave patterns into the fabric that's my basic understanding. I'm going to have to look this up really quick, let me see. Jacquard - an apparatus with perforated cards, fitted to a loom to facilitate the weaving of figured and brocaded fabrics. A fabric made on a loom fitted with a jacquard, with an intricate variegated pattern.
If it's jacquard does that mean it's also brocade?

I just received my current issue of Vogue patterns magazine (April/May 2018, page 63-67.) There is an article about this topic that may answer your questions. It discusses jacquards, brocades, damask, tapestry, brocatelle and metalasse. One quote: "...while all brocades are jacquards, not all jacquards are brocades." Perhaps you could glance at the article on your next visit to your local fabric store and decide if it has the information you want before you purchase the magazine. HTH
