A jacquard weave fabric related to brocade, brocatelle is thicker and heavier—with its figures in higher relief. Originally made of silk, the fabric may now be made of wool, cotton, silk, manufactured fibers, and combinations. As with brocade, it is not considered reversible.

Uses: Interior decorating, lighter versions occasionally for clothing
