AREA : Weaving
OBJECT: Jacquard loom
DESCRIPTION : the jacquard loom is based on the same principle of computers. In the photography you can only see the higher part of the loom.
WORKING NOTES : starting from below, the threads descend attached to the arpini (we don't know the English translation for this word). These arpini are divided by a hackle and the jacquard pattern is on them. This part of the loom is approximately as big as a school desk.
