Schiesser Lexicon - Yarn - Weaving - Jacquard Weaving


In the abovementioned weaving technique, only a new specific amount of warp threads are merged in a so-called shaft, whereby they can be raised and/or lowered together in order to build a shed for weft threads. On the other hand, in a Jacquard weaving loom, each weft thread is individually controllable, i.e. one can form a different shed for each new row, for every new weft thread. Therefore one has the possibility to have practically unlimited patterns (e.g. damask / webbed laces / tapestries, etc. or tablecloths / ties / carpets, etc.) The manufactured patterns are more time-consuming then patterns through imprinting, but are more durable. One must note that this fantastic machine was invented by Joseph Maria Jacquard in 1805 in Lyon and that is why it is named like that.
