Basket Weaves

An extension of the plain weave, both in the length and width, and giving a matt weave; also known as "hopsack weave." When this principle is extended to 16-shafts or more the floats of warp and weft are stitched to bind the design to give a firm fabric, these are fancy basket weaves as used in the woollen and worsted trades.
