If you don’t already know it, Jacquard is a patterned cloth, a pattern that comes through a weave and not a print. Jacquard Weaving Machine was invented by Joseph-Marie Jacquard in 1804. This machine could manufacture a complex and detailed pattern even by an unskilled worker. It was a great revolution as it required very little time and little knowledge.
Now the question is, what’s a Rapier Weaving Machine?
Weaving machines usually have a shuttle that has a holder which carries the weft yarn while weaving. The shuttle is passed back and forth through the warp yarns to weave in the weft.
A shuttleless weaving loom in which the weft yarn is carried through warp yarns to the other side of the loom by carriers, these carriers are called rapiers.
There are two kinds of Rapier looms, one with a single rapier and the other with a double rapier. As you know that the single rapier carries the weft yarn back and forth through the warp yarn, in the double rapier two rapiers are used, one for each half of the width of the fabric. Double rapier machines are more common than single rapier machines for their faster speed and their capability to weave a wider width of fabric.
