Does anyone know how to refer to this style of stitching or what I would call this fabric that seems like machine made tapestry? I know I've seen similar on cheap pillows that must me machine made too, but can only find other examples on that twitter account. I feel like I'm missing the vocabulary to get what I want on google, but am curious how it's made.

EDIT:
That person's site ended up listing it as a 'Jacquard woven tapestry' which is the answer I was looking for. The loom and process is just as interesting and complicated as you'd imagine, and was a precursor to modern computers.
