Digital jacquard fabric has its design concept and method directly borrowed from computer images and color modes. This has enabled the creation of innovative jacquard fabric design that is far beyond what freehand patterns can express. In this paper, the principles of digital jacquard designing have been classified into two parts: colorless mode and colorful mode, and an innovative layered-combination design mode has been suggested that contains this new design concept, by which digital jacquard fabric can be designed from colorless single-layer structures to colorful compound structures. As a result, designed jacquard fabrics are capable of expressing picturesque and photo-realistic effects with a mega-level color number on the face of the fabric. It is envisaged that the results of the study are of tremendous benefit to the creation of new jacquard fabrics with inimitable digital effects that can be manufactured.
