First, the pronunciation: Toile sounds like "twa". It's French, which is why it is spelled so fancy. Feel free to add a slightly nasal tone, curl your moustache, and say it with me-- "toile".

Toile is a shortened version of the French phrase "Toile de Jouy" (or Fabric of Joy), which oft-features a pattern with a complex pastoral scene, usually with well-dressed women and men enjoying a picnic in the woods, or a prince reclining against a tree.

This particular cut features children playing in the country scenes, with various shades of blue and a very faint yellow against a white background. We can't promise that this square will make you more cultured, but at least you will know how to say "toile".

This fabric is vintage and so this pocket square is a limited run. Pattern placement will vary piece by piece.
