Conventionally the task of the insertion of weft threads to make a variety of designs is done manually by tying knots. It is tedious, cumbersome, and time-consuming. The thread is also wasted in the connection between one motif and another. Innovator has come up with a device consisting of three components; a base frame, a magnet-bearing shaft, and a specially designed bobbin. These components can be fitted to any handloom Jacquard machine. The innovation reduces the time required for making designs to one-third of what is required in the traditional way of doing it.
