Repeating seamless patterns: definitions, free samples, links, and how-tos


A method of making fabrics by interlacing two sets of yarns (threads), in which one set (warp) runs along the length of fabric and the other (weft) runs from side to side. The three basic weaves are plain, twill, and satin.
