When buying woven fabrics for your use, you need to consider the type of fabric you pick. We have different types of fabrics and weaves so we can offer the best quality woven fabric for all your end uses.
You can select from a variety of woven greige or loomstate fabric weaves from the simplest plain weave to more complex dobby weaves. Here we explain a few of the fabrics we weave:
Plain Weave: This is the simplest weave requiring a 2 harness loom, formed by yarns at right angles whereby each warp yarn interlaces with each weft yarn. Filling yarns pass over and under alternate warp yarns. It is reversible, firm & wears well, less absorbent, abrasion resistant, used as background for printing/embroidery. Some of the plain weaves are broadcloth, muslin, batiste, percale, seersucker, organdy, voile, and tweed.
Twills: Twill weave is characterized by the effect of parallel diagonal ribs formed left-to-right or right-to-left. It is created by the interlacing of 2 or 3 warp threads over 1 or 2 filling thread in alternate rows. The resulting fabric is more pliable and drape-able than the plain or basket weave. Twill weave which has more warps than the wefts floating on the face of the fabric is called warp faced and those with wefts predominating is known as weft faced.
pique weavePique: Lightweight to heavyweight cotton fabric with a raised woven design. Lengthwise wales or cords on the face of fabric (formed by extra warp yarns) that are held in place by crosswise weft floats on the back of fabric. Extra warp yarns do not show on face of fabric. They are not interwoven but laid under the cords to emphasize quilted effect. It is mainly made on dobby or jacquard loom.
