Brocade was an important fabric during the renaissance period and was the luxury fabric worn by the nobles in India, China, Greece, Japan and Korea. Although, the designs woven on these fabrics were often Persian in origin.

Until 1801, brocades were woven manually on draw-looms operated by master weavers. After the use of machines was started, all the brocades are manufactured using jacquard devices. So in that case, we can say all the modern brocades are jacquards, but all jacquards cannot be called brocades.
