Susan Kare is a pioneer of early computer graphic interface design. In the 80s, she began work at Apple Computer designing fonts, icons, and visual elements for the original Macintosh operating system and applications. Kare designed this set of textiles for the Jacquard loom, an early example of computer-controlled machinery, operated with punched cards and invented by Joseph Jacquard in 1801. This line of fine textiles celebrates the parallels between weaving and pixels; both rely on the idea of a grid spread across the surface of a medium.
