Digital Jacquard Loom


Tapestries are large format textile images formed by weaving colored weft threads into warp threads. Traditionally, tapestries were hand-woven and their correspondence to the artist's cartoons depended on the skill of the weaver. The Jacquard loom revolutionized the textile world by mechanizing the process of weaving and democratizing their acquisition. This mechanical loom uses a system of punch cards to control the weaving of the design, which until then was carried out by hand. Over time, the popularity of tapestries declined and weaving was marginalized as a craft.

In recent years, with the development of digital Jacquard loom , artists have returned to tapestry as a medium. Factum Arte, in collaboration with Flanders Tapestries and Marcos Ludueña, is proud to contribute to the restitution of large format textiles as a vehicle for artistic expression. Factum Arte's team of textile conservators and experts in both color and digital technology help artist define the color palette, determine the tightness or looseness of the weave, and run test strips for their tapestries.
