The word “toile” (pronounced “twahl”) as we use it today is actually a bit of a misnomer. “Toile” in French just means “fabric.” Toile de Jouy is the accurate name of this pattern, which was originally printed on fabric in the French town of Jouy. Its name became truncated somewhere along the way. Toile was created in 1770 with the invention of copper plate engraving, which allowed for its characteristic fine detailing. Beforehand, white fabric was hand painted or printed with clunkier wood blocks. While single-color motifs on white are by far the most common, two-toned and dark-background toiles do exist.
