Jacquard refers to a fabric created using a special type of loom known as Jacquard loom. The interesting feature of this loom is that it can incorporate highly complex & rich patterns right into the fabric itself rather than embossing or embroidering them. The result is a strong & radiant fabric with mesmerising designs & colours. Jacquard weaving is extremely famous for making furnishing fabrics such as upholstery and drapery. In olden times, before the invention of Jacquard loom, pattern designing on fabrics was an exacting task that required significant labour & time. But today, a jacquard loom (device, to be precise) can make virtually any type of intricate pattern into a fabric at a considerably low price with minimal labour.
