Everything to know about Fabric and Textiles

Definition of Jacquard


US English version

A woven design made with the aid of a jacquard head (this constitutes a jacquard loom) and may vary from simple, self-colored, spot effects to elaborate, multicoloured all-over effects.
The loom operates a bit like the roller on a player piano. But instead of notes, it gives instructions to the machine on how to create the design.



Derivation: Named after J. M. Jacquard, French inventor of the loom d. 1834
