Jacquard refers to the method of weaving a design directly into the fabric instead of being printed or dyed on. Woven fabrics are manufactured by using the Jacquard attachment on the loom. This attachment provides versatility in designs and permits individual control of each of the warp yarns, hence, fabrics of almost any type or complexity can be made. The piece of apparatus used for this type of weave is called a Jacquard loom, after its French inventor Joseph Marie Jacquard.

Brocade and Damask are types of jacquard woven fabrics.
