This book describes the development of the loom from a crude wooden frame to a sophisticated electronic weaving machine. It introduces textile techniques and there is a description of primitive looms. Medieval craft guilds, the domestic system and Yeoman Weavers are dealt with, while handloom weaving is contrasted with the mill system. The authors examine fabrics such as brocades produced on Chinese drawlooms and the introduction of Jacquard and dobby weaving in the nineteenth century. The reaction against industrialisation and William Morris's inauguration of the Arts and Crafts movement are discussed in relation to the revival of the twentieth century.
