HOW IT WORKS

Designing
smarter textiles.

A new dimension of interaction

From the very first touch, Jacquard feels familiar. That’s because our focus has always been to add a new layer of connectivity and interactivity to things that you already know and understand. Using Jacquard Threads, embedded electronics, and intelligent software, we create textiles and materials that can understand your gestures and communicate back using light and haptic feedback. As more products adopt the Jacquard platform, you’ll have more ways to interact with the things you love.


Works behind
the seams.

The Jacquard tag is small, discreet, yet robust and powerful. It's a tiny computer that connects to Jacquard app and translates your interactions into commands that Jacquard app can execute. And whether it's a jacket, a backpack or a shoe, the Jacquard Tag can be embedded seamlessly into the design of the product so it feels like a part of it.

Fibers that feel.

Jacquard Threads make touch gestures possible. Once spun, they look, feel, and perform like normal yarn and can be woven into interactive textiles that are indistinguishable from regular textiles.

Tech Fibers 1
Just like normal yarn.

Jacquard Threads are using conductive metal alloys that are incredibly thin, so they can be combined with a variety of natural and synthetic fibers to create different yarns.

Tech Fibers 2
Keeping with tradition.

Jacquard’s interactive textiles honor centuries of traditions in textile craftsmanship. They can be manufactured using established manufacturing techniques and industrial looms, making it easier for brands to adopt the platform.

Tech Fiber 3
Beautiful and versatile.

Jacquard can add interactivity and connectivity to a wide spectrum of textile materials. There are no limits to the imagination when it comes to colors, shapes, and designs.

Abilities
Make it yours.

Personalize and enhance your Jacquard articles with various Jacquard Abilities. With Actions, you can customize gestures to access online services, apps, and information without reaching for your phone2. For example, with a simple brush of your cuff, you can get your next direction, skip to the next track on your playlist, or hear upcoming appointments. Set up Alerts to get notifications with light or haptic feedback. For example, get notified when your ride-share arrives or when you get a message from an important loved one. As more services become available on the Jacquard platform, so will the ways you can use Jacquard Abilities. With Jacquard, your things just get better over time.
