Charming Toile...

Toile, which is short for Toile du Juoy, is a pattern used in home d├ęcor. The repeated pattern is traditionally set on fabric with a white or cream background, and printed most often in navy, red and black. The pattern is traditionally a one-color pastoral scene that tells a story. Due to toile’s rise in popularity, it has found a place not only on the traditional fabric, but also on wallpaper and clothing.
The name, which is a French word, translates literally to "cloth." Its origins can be traced to Jouy-en-Josas, France, where the first commercial plant to mass produce it started production in 1760.
