The toile de Jouy is a so-called Indian fabric, as it is the name given to painted or printed fabrics manufactured in Europe between the 17th and 19th centuries. They owe their name to the fact that they were initially imported from the Indian trading posts and were banned from being imported from the 18th century. In 1760, Christophe Philippe Oberkampf was a well-known manufacturer of Indian fabrics. His workshops at the Jouy-en-Josas factory owed their fame to the quantity of designs they offered, and to the fact that the designs were created by influential artists, such as Jean-Baptise Huet. The designs represented are most often monochrome, red, or aubergine on an ecru background, but can be declined in other colors. Sometimes, the colors are reversed: one can find drawings of ecru tint on colored grounds.
