The invention of the Jacquard loom revolutionized the textile industry by semi-automating weaving. The blue herringbone pattern figured ground is achieved by the Jacquard punched card process. High quality fabrics such as the Louis XV and Louis XVI styles were in great demand by the new industrial society. The quantity and variety of silver wrapped silk threads, as well as the taste and subtlety of coloring of the garland of roses, violets, morning glories, leaves, and shells, is equal to the high level of 18th century work.
