Woven fabric: Woven fabric is a cloth formed by weaving.

It only stretches diagonally on the bias directions (between the warp and weft directions), unless the threads are elastic. woven - made or constructed by interlacing threads or strips of material or other elements into a whole; "woven fabrics . Woven cloth usually frays at the edges, unless measures are ta!en to counter this, such as the use of pin!ing shears or hemming. Woven fabrics are wor!ed on a big loom and made of many threads woven on a warp and a weft. Classification of Loom "oom

Weave structure Used In this project: Huck a back: #he huc! a bac! weaves are basically toweling fabrics. #hey are generally associated with honey comb fabrics and hence !nown as honeycomb effects. #hey are constructed by alternately combining a floating with a plain weave. Interestingly, a number of weaves are derived from these weaves. $uc! a bac! weaves are suitable for producing thic! and heavy te%tures. &ne of the well !nown heavier varieties of this class is the '(recians . #he design of huc! a bac! weaves permits stripe and chec! effects to be brought out in the fabrics. #he huc! a bac! weaves are generally characteri)ed by the following features*  +epeat is divided into four e,ual parts. #wo parts are filled with plain weave and remaining two parts are filled with long float motif.  -lain weave gives firmness to the cloth.

Honey Comb: #he honey comb weaves derive their name from their partial resemblance to the he%agonal honey comb cells of wa% in which bees store their honey.uired would ideally be a dobby loom fitted with a fast reed mechanism. "ong float motif gives moisture absorbency. #he weaves are of #wo classes. In many cases. they are generally employed in combination with other weaves. light dress fabrics. and also linen towels for use as glass cloths.
