Tapestry weaved using Jacquard mechanism
They are tapestries
with continuous weft. The XIXth century is the begining time of the
mechanization: the constant vogue of the tapestry causes research. Technical
improvements, and the manufacturers try to replace expensive human labour by the
machine; The invention of the Jacquard loom then allow some manufacturers to
make fabrics imitating the tapestry. Jacquard specifies in its patent of 1801:
"the manner the machine is moving by the means of the treadles is a great
advantage, since it results from it more celerity in the execution ".
Others said tapestries will be made using a fabric whose warp and weft are of same color, what exclude
thus any drawing performed by the weft. Then after they will print the scenes or
the motives with a stencil key set or by silk-screen printer (using a kind of
stencil key set carried out photo-mechanically).
