This is a short film with a lot of sound about jaquardweaving.
Jaquard weaving invented by Joseph Marie Jaquard from Lyon 1805.
By using punched cards could weave complicated patterns with only one pedal. Jaquardtekniken was an early application of binary digital technology that is the basis for today's computers.
The film is from a weaving mill in France and on in Sweden.
