Toile de Jouy is a fabric print style in imitation of mid- to late- 18th century prints made by Christophe Philippe Oberkampf, a German, in the town of Jouy, near Paris. Toile is a French word for cloth; the fabric features late 18th century bucolic scenes, usually with people, trees and flowers.

Typically the print is in fairly large scale, using one dark shade on white or off-white. It is printed on plain weave cotton or cotton blends of a substantial weight, although the style of print can be found on silk, linen or manufactured fibers.

Uses: Household decorating, not so commonly for accessories and apparel
