Creation of the weave

The creation of the jacquard weave is credited to the French inventor, Joseph Marie Jacquard, who invented the first-ever automatic loom to weave elaborate and intricate images into silk fabrics. With the use of special jacquard looms, the designs are directly woven into the fabric rather than printed on it. 

Silk jacquard sarees hold a prime place in the fashion world. Whether it is pure silk or silk blends they can look extremely luxurious once draped.  These sarees are textured due to their weave and display variegated or a slightly raised pattern.

Properties of Jacquard sarees

Jacquard sarees are slightly heavier and feature long floating threads on the reverse side of the fabric. Though the process may be time-consuming and labor-intensive, as an end result we can achieve complex and intricate patterns. Sarees with jacquard weaves flaunt a rich luster and are more stretchy. Due to their heavier texture, they are more durable as well. Jacquard patterns can be woven with utmost accuracy, that any imagined design could be reproduced.
