Ribbon loom, made by T. F. Wilkinson & Co. Ltd, Coventry, c.1900. Fitted on the top with Jacquard head made by J McMurdo Ltd Manchester.
At the top of this loom is a programming system. Cards with small, punched holes programmed the loom to weave different designs. It made woven patterned cloth much easier and cheaper to produce. The punch-card system inspired the invention of the earliest computer.
This ribbon loom weaves four ribbons at the same time, with two shuttles to each ribbon.
