The "Pig Cage" Loom, Jacquard weaving without the clutter
I ran across a reference to the "Pig Cage" or "Bamboo Cage" loom while doing some research on brocade weave. The loom has been used in it's relatively unchanged configuration from the Han Dynasty. The product of this loom is very similar to that porduced on the jacquard loom but the design of the bamboo cage loom is so much simpler.
Has anyone had an opportunity to see one of these in action?
