Japanese garden (日本庭園, Nihon teien) comes from ancient Japanese tradition.
In Japan, landscaping is an important and respected art, sharing aesthetic codes with calligraphy and wash. The Japanese garden seeks to interpret and idealize nature by limiting ar- tifices. Some of the most famous gardens in the West and in Japan are « Zen gardens », made up of gravel or streaked sand.
This design takes up the refined and zen spirit of the magnificent Japanese gardens with subtly mixed background colors.
Invented in 1804 by Frenchman, Joseph Marie Jacquard, the original Jacquard head simplified the process of machine making complex patterns through a number of punched cards ‘chained' together in sequence.
Each card featured a number of punched holes to form a single row of the pattern and the chain could be as long as needed, helping Jacquard equipped looms to produce some really fantastic and surprisingly intricate designs. Now with digital control, modern-day electronic Jacquard machines are computer-controlled, significantly reducing the downtime with changing traditional card machines, avoiding the necessity for repeats and showing almost complete versatility in creating pattern. By far the best way to machine make rugs, electronic Jacquard rug making speeds-up production dramatically, helping to bring beautiful design at a really competitive price point.
