Applications of digitally designed jacquard textiles
This chapter presents case studies of existing products and potential products in which digitally designed jacquard textiles may have applications.
Because jacquard fabrics consist of threads that may be interwoven in a variety of constructions, the images produced have a richness of texture and tactile effect that is unique to woven technology, e.g. the shot effect described in Chapter 7. Conventional jacquard images produced and/or created on woven textiles are often crude and limited in colour due to their bi-axial constraints and complex warp–weft constructions.
