Weaving Obi

At the textile center in Kyoto there were also some jacquard looms weaving obi cloth.   

In the first picture the weaver is doing a pickup brocade on a shaft loom.  The second is the jacquard.  
Here is a closer look at the fell of the cloth.
The brocade is woven upside down with the long floats on the upper side.
This is the right side of the pattern.
Upstairs there was this wonderful little model of a jacquard loom.
