  • 18 shafts - New weave enlargement technique on shafts - Nouvelle technique d'agrandissement d'armures sur lames

    For more than a hundred years all kinds of weaves have been found with the handloom, the Jacquard loom, the drawloom including "Taqueté, Samit and Lampas".
    Our forebears extensively shetched the enlargement of small weaves.
    However, they did not have computers, which has left the study uncomplete.
    Therefore, the purpose of this webpage is to provide you a complete global technique.

    Depuis plus de cent ans tout a été trouvé en matière d'armures que ce soit sur le métier armuré, le métier Jacquard ou le métier à la tire avec les "Taqueté, Samit  et Lampas"
    Nos anciens ont même largement esquissé l'agrandissement des armures sur lames, mais , comme ils ne disposaient pas à l'époque d'ordinateurs, l'étude n'a pas été systématique comme nous vous le proposons dans cette page Web. 

    Attention, please : files only for handloom (tie-up and treadling)
