What is Jacquard?

  • Jacquard is a loom textured fabric that has complicated patterns woven into it as the weaving process is done.
  • It is defined for its weave fabric not for the kind of yarn since it may be manufactured by any material.
  • It is a little pricey because of the time and talent needed.
  • Jacquards are available both in tone-on-tone and contrast designs, and a range of patterns is unlimited: from simple stripes and polka dots to sophisticated botanicals, flowers, and even conversational themes.


  • As a "draw boy" on a conventional brocade loom in the late 1700s, Joseph Marie Jacquard paved the way for the development of the term "jacquard."
  • At one point, they had to lift half their body weight when weaving reeds, and they were expected to labour six to eight hours a day. Drawing threads from the warp and rewinding them is the job of the draw lad.
  • Rather of relying on draw boys to create brocade textiles, Jacquard sought for a more efficient method.
  • Instead of a draw boy, the loom was guided by punch cards, which told it which threads to lift at what times to form a jacquard weave.
  • Early computers and binary coding were influenced by the punch card design created by Jacquard more than 130 years before he patented his loom.

New Age Innovations 

  • High-end and traditional applications use silk and cotton jacquards, but current designers are using a broader range of fibers, including as linen and cotton mixes, into their designs.
  • Bedspreads, sofa coverings, tablecloths—and, of course, Marc Jacobs's stunning and creative clothing—are now accessible to the general public.
