Here's part 2 of the different types of weavings!
Jacquard weave is produced on a special loom, and is characterised by complex woven-in designs, often with large design repeats or tapestry effects.
Fabrics made by this method include brocade, damask, and brocatelle.
Jacquard patterns, when carefully analysed, may be seen to contain combinations of plain, twill, and satin weaves, even in the same crosswise yarn.
any decorative fabrics are made by the jacquard technique. It’s an expensive weaving method, but the design do not fade or wear out. However, its durability depends on the fibres used.
Extra sets of warps or fillings are woven over ground yarns of plain or twill weave to form loops. Pile fabrics have been defined as fabrics with cut or uncut loops which stand up densely on the surface.
ile fabrics may be created by weaving or through other construction techniques, such as tufting, knitting, or stitch through.
The Dobby weave is considered a fancy weave as it generally has unique geometric patterns in the fabric. This is accomplished by using a special loom that raises and lowers the warp threads individually, creating the dobby weave's distinctive patterns.
Dobby fabric is versatile due to the many possible patterns created. The fabric can be used for formal wear right through to casual shirts.
This fabric can come in all kinds of patterns, colours, weights and hand feels.
End-on-end fabric is essentially Poplin but with one coloured thread and one white (or another) coloured thread. This gives the fabric a heather appearance up close but appear as a solid colour from a distance.
his is a great fabric when you wish to create a shirt with a little more character. End-on-ends are sometimes called fil-a-fil, the French term for "thread-to-thread" or Chambray.
Poplin weave tends to be lighter than other weaves and therefore more appropriate for warmer climate. Also, Poplin feels light, cool and crisp against the skin and the classic plain weave allows your skin to breathe superbly.
Poplin uses finer yarns compared to Broadcloth. However, they tend to be more difficult to iron than Twill shirts.
