A bit of history
Presented in Paris for the first time in 1801, this particular weaving mechanism was immediately recognized as an important leap in technology, allowing patterns to be stored on cards and re - used to fabricate same-design products. For the last two decades, this distinct pixilated - looking weaving style has appeared and re - appeared in some of the most iconic couture collections and in everyday fashion making its comeback between Paisley and retro - chic. All – time favorite of many designers such as Givenchy and Diane Von Furstenberg, Jacquard was the star of the spotlight down the catwalk of a 2012 Christian Dior event in Shanghai and at the 2013 NYC Fall Fashion Show bringing back every time its timeless pattern of pure class.
zChocolat’s first choice For its 2013 - 2014 Holiday Collections, it was essential for zChocolat to relook its boxes taking into account a historic design with a true symbolism representing style, authenticity and a touch of childhood magic. The extremely complex and expensive technique of Jacquard weaving, demanding a 100% Made – in - France “savoir-faire” was zChocolat’s first choice pattern, embracing its own fundamentals: elegance, intelligence and excellence.
zChocolat offers a never – before -seen service (7 days a week) for their customers that consists in personally telephoning the recipients to inform them that a special gift is on its way. This service is ideal when latein gift-sending or even simply to arouse the receiver’s curiosity.
