Jacquard dress material

general term for all large-area weave-pattern f. produced by jacquard-patterning technology on Jacquard looms. The complex mechanisms of the Jacquard loom make possible the weaving of patterns (flowers, leaves, invented designs) of practically unlimited size, which cannot be performed by listing machines. Typical j. d. m. are damask, brocade and furniture fabrics. The name is given by that of Frenchman Joseph M. Jacquard, who invented this type of loom.
