Woven Fabric - Guide to Woven Fabric
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.

A woven fabric is a cloth formed by the act of weaving.  Wovens only stretch in the bias directions (between the warp and weft 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.
