What is toile?

Toile is a French word that means “linen cloth” or “canvas”. This has been a popular decorating feature since the mid 1700’s. In relation to decorating, toile refers to repeating patterns on fabric. The pattern can be a pastoral scene, floral designs with extensive details. When toile was originally developed it was printed as a test pattern on white or off white fabric by dressmakers. Toile was usually printed in a single color often a muted green, blue or brown.
