Jacquard is a processing technique used in knitwear and weaving characterized by complex geometric or figured motifs that takes its name from the inventor of the machine that is able to do this, Joseph-Marie Jacquard.
The motifs reproduced thanks to the jacquard technique are not drawn or printed but sewn directly into the mesh or fabric. 

The origins of jacquard date back to the 1800s, a historical period in which the embroidery on the fabrics was made exclusively by hand. This decidedly complex practice required very long production times and the use of several hands in addition to those of the weaver for a single piece. 

In 1801, at the Exposition des Produits de l'Industrie National in Paris, the Lyonese Joseph-Marie Jacquard, the son of weavers, presented a device that applied to the manual loom made the selection of the threads mechanical to weave the design on the fabric. The jacquard loom was born which allowed the weaver to work on the loom without the help of assistants. 

In the following years, the important contribution that the jacquard loom brought to the textile production sector was recognized: greater attention to detail, the possibility of choosing increasingly elaborate designs and top quality fabrics.
