Modern computer was inspired by the Jacquard fabrics

A little intro of jacquard fabric which makes it more special than other fabrics. The most unique and rich part of the jacquard fabric is that it has three-dimensional bump textile which makes it divine and elegant. ⠀


More importantly, the Jacquard fabric is a textured fabric that has complex patterns woven, rather than printed or embroidered on top. It is an extremely time-consuming process to make. There are limited facilities in the world and the process is labor-intensive and the production is very low. Accordingly, this fabric is more expensive than typical woven fabrics, probably 2 to 3 times more. ⠀

プリントまたは刺繍されているのではなく、複雑な模様を直接編み込んでいる生地です。限られた織物工場しかなく、生産するのに手間のかかる生地でもあります。そして生産量も低い。 なので通常の生地より約2倍高く売られております。

In 1804, French inventor from weaving family, Joseph Marie Jacquard invented an important textile "Jacquard" which kickstarted the automation of the weaving industry. The Jacquard loom was the first programmable machine to the punched cards. Later, went on to influence world first computer programmer Charles Babbage. So don`t forget Jacquard fabric is considered an important step towards modern computers which you are looking at now. ⠀



So here I am, introducing my 2020 Spring/Summer collections which Expansion NY just released the Jacquard fabric shirts bucket hats and shorts. I spend so many hours and days to find and handpick this Jacquard geometric pattern. In my head, I could imagine wearing this matching Jacquard fabric shirts and shorts relaxing in a Caribbean island holding a pina colada cocktail and smoking a Cuban cigar.⠀
