What is "Faconne" - Definition & Explanation

A fabric with small scattered motifs usually jacquard but sometimes burn out.
Silk or rayon with a figured weave or 'burnt-out' finish. Faconne in French, means fancy weave. It has small designs all over the fabric. Fairly light in weight, and could be slightly creped. Background is more sheer than the designs, therefore the designs seem to stand out. It is very effective when worn over a different color and it drapes, handles, and wears well.
