Jacquard Weaving

From DeeDee:

Two films from the Almgren Silk Weaving Museum on Södermalm in Stockholm. http://www.kasiden.se/museet/

These links are in Swedish, but both films are so enjoyable. (Youtube)

Jaquard is a film that is poetic to listen to and watch. It features the one and only Jaquard Weaver at the museum – http://youtu.be/QDucG8uaTm0

SFJournalfilm is longer but rather comical with its 1940’s era music. It shows the entire process – http://youtu.be/WWgO8xuVHHQ
