La Maison des Canuts

Mesa Study Abroad
While in Lyon, we visited an Atelier to view weaving using Jacquard looms. This was an amazing experience, as it brought home various lessons studied in Conf 140, Textiles, yet again.

Here are some images of the Jacquard loom. As textile and fashion students, we take pride in knowing that the Jacquard loom and it's punch card system was the early predecessor to computers.
