Pulished on Jul. 14, 2020

The original structure of the woven fabric, including plain, twill, and satin. Various change organizations, joint organizations, complex organizations, and jacquard organizations are based on these three types of changes and combinations, also known as "three original organizations."

Plain weave

Plain weave: The structure formed by interweaving warp and weft yarns is called the plain weave.

Features of plain weave fabric

① The number of interlacing (points) is the most, which makes the fabric firm, wear-resistant, hard to feel, less elastic, and poor in gloss.

Since the warp and weft yarns of the plain weave are interlaced every other one, in the arrangement plane of the same number of warp and weft yarns, the number of interlaces is the most, the yarn buckling is the most, and the floating long thread is the shortest. Make the fabric firm, wear-resistant, stiff and smooth, but less elastic and weak in gloss. Because the warp and weft yarns are interwoven many times, the yarns are not easy to get too close, so the density of the fabric is generally not too large.

② The apparent effect of the front and back is the same, the surface is flat, the pattern is monotonous.

③ Under the same specifications, it is the thinnest compared with other tissue fabrics.

④The fabric is not easy to sand and has the good anti-hook performance.

⑤ The woven density is the smallest (poor density) and easy to disassemble.

Because the warp and weft yarns are interwoven many times, the yarns are not easy to get too close, so the density of the fabric is generally not too large.
