The French word “toile” refers to any one of the many plain or simple twill weave fabrics, especially those made of linen, but today we hear the word and think more specifically of “toile de Jouy,” the 18th century French scenic patterns that were usually printed on cotton, linen or silk in just one color against a light background. Toile is considered a classic decorating choice, and Schumacher and Co. recently released its Marine Toile print as part of the Schumacher Classics Collection.
A faithful, hand-engraved rendering of a rare 19th-century document, this design captures toile’s timeless appeal while making a bold, captivating statement all its own. The print comes in Delft blue, Indigo blue and Black. The fabric is 53 inches wide and has a horizontal repeat of 38 inches, a vertical repeat of 75 inches. The fabric is 100 percent cotton.
