An aired aspect fabric, obtained intersing the evolution of two yarns to canvas with triple rised and lowered yearn both in warp and weft
The surface of this fabric similar to a bark is obtained by using high twist yarns in one twist direction only. The finest fabrics in this category are called “chiffons”
The most important cotton fabric made with resistant, medium weight yarns
Very open plain woven fabrics
Special effect obtained with the technioque of two warp yarns twisted around the weft yarns to provide a strong yet sheer fabric. The standard warp yarn is paired with a skeleton or ‘doup’ yarn; these twisted warp yarns grip tightly to the weft which causes the durability of the fabric. Leno weave produces an open fabric with almost no yarn slippage or misplacement of threads
Very aired fabric whose pattern is obtained doubling or tripling the canvas both in warp and in weft
Fabric with alternating smooth and rough stripes. The name comes from ancient Persian “sir-o-sakar” (milk and honey). Seersucker is woven in such a way that some threads bunch together, giving the fabric a wrinkled appearance in places. The puckered aspect is due to the weak and tense chain yarns. The two different tensions are obtained by using double beams.
The weave presents longitudinal effects (warp) in relief, split by two stitches of canvas.
Double-warp fabric, right and reverse worked together using special framework and with colour effects that lets the fabric be reversible
Waffle fabric presenting on both sides a squared embossed pattern, similar to a honeycomb. This effect is obtained by the juxtaposition in warp and in weft of decreasing evolutions
Fabric’s surface is in relief, obtained with padding weaves that, due to their position through the fine deep fabric, give the typical aspect of piquè
Piquè presenting a pattern worked in relief on a loom with two warps and three wefts. The relief is given by the padding weft. The use of retractable yarn can improve the filling effect
Double canvas fabric with two warps and two wefts. The fabric’s double-layer creates some tubes split by a ligature. It is a very soft fabric with an excellent fall thanks to the use of slow-twist yarns
Resistant cotton fabric with a cross twill chain effect very closed. The warp is mostly dark (bleu) and the weft is light
A cross twill variation, whose effect is obtained by inverting the cross twill in order to produce a typical surface effect
