Jacquard is the main brand name of Rupert, Gibbon & Spider, Inc. based in California, USA. The business was created by the Katz family and, like so many craft supplies businesses was first based in their garage. By the 1990’s they were manufacturing art supplies using the brand name, Jacquard Products. Red Label Silk Colour dyes were Jacquard’s first product and were designed for silk painters.

Jacquard has continued to expand the product lines with ranges including Dye-Na-Flow, Lumiere and Neopaque fabric paints. Green Label Silk Colours, Procion MX, Acid Dye, Pearl Ex Powdered Pigments and iDye, a powder dye in a dissolvable pack, all of which have been created to address the needs of specific artists and crafters. The most recent products are the SolarFast dyes which provide a different printing experience working with sunlight to set the image.

The Tie Dye Kits were the first professional-grade Procion MX dye kits available to the non-professional artist. Alongside these Jacquard have developed a number of Class Packs containing all the ingredients required for educational groups to carry out a worthwhile project; SolarFast, Dye-Na-Flow, Marbling, Tie Dye and Silk Painting. Jacquard also carries the highly regarded Silk and Cotton Fabric Sheets which accept Inkjet printing.
