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.
