I think the list of photographs of various weaves and designs (what's the difference? Weaves have designs, designs have weaves?) very beautiful.

But I miss a commentary by experienced regarding advantages and disadvantages, the historical development, the various purposes, etc. Nail Biting.gif

A very nice find. What defines a weave then? It looks as if it's not only the weave, but the colour of the threads too. For instance, a shepherd's check is "a common twill weave coloured ...".

Yes, that's my question, too - put more consciously by the observation regarding colour of thread, which I overlooked.
Shepherd's check caught my eye as an attractive shirt design, in cotton. Why aren't the various kind of materials given in which these weaves are and are not produced? For example, is cavalry twill not in cotton?

Thanks, Sator. It is a bit confusing that the piece blends weave and design. The other thread (showtopic=298) is on the weave only. For clarification it could be interesting to make a chart on weave, design, pattern, material etc.

Nice find. Just one question: what's the difference between a corkscrew and a herringbone? They both look the same to me. (The only difference I can see is that the angle formed by the lines in the corkscrew is more obtuse, so is it just a quantitative difference then? But where do you draw the line between the two?)

It's probably the low angel in corkscrew.

I made a nice PDF of the pages, I can send by email, someone can upload.

Just an FYI:

www.scribd.com is a free document hosting service that's a little less schlocky than Mediafire. I've gotten computer viruses from MF a number of times, so I try to avoid that site. Just thought I'd mention there is an alternative.
