Welcome to the
Woven Fabric website. This textile guide has
been designed to help members of the textile industry
and fashion industry learn more about Woven Fabric.
woven fabric is a cloth formed by the
act of weaving. Wovens only stretch
in the bias directions (between the
directions), unless the yarns are elastic.
Woven cloth typically frays at the edges,
unless measures are taken to counter this, such
as the use of pinking shears or hemming.
Woven fabrics are manufactured on a loom
and made of many yarns woven on a warp
and a weft. In other words, the
weaving is the process of forming
a fabric on a loom by interlacing the warp (lengthwise
yarns) and the filling (crosswise yarns) with
each other. The three basic weaves are
plain, twill, and satin. All other weaves,
no matter how intricate, employ one or more
of these basic weaves in their composition.
