Toile de Joui érotique. That is what Paris-based Pascale Risbourg of K-Lou Design is calling this grown-up version of the classic Toile de Jouy pattern from the 1800s...
"Toile de joui" is a play on words (from the French verb jouir, meaning to have an orgasm) and features a playfully erotic version of
the normally prudish fabric. Available in pillows, fabric, wallpaper and bed linens.
