Plain weave

Generally term used to indicate any fabric of linen, cotton or hemp. It correctly indicates the basic armature of the smallest intertwining that exists: the armature ratio consists of two single strands and two sole strands. Since each warp yarn is interwoven with each weft yarn, the bridles are minimal, the fabric tighter and more durable than any other type. The right is equal to the reverse, the surface slightly opaque. The canvas can be full and compact, but also open, working, depending on the result you want to get: you go from the canvas, very dense, robust, large and waterproof, to the light gauze, to the voile. It is manufactured with any fibre. The most common use is in linen or cotton linens or in light summer fabrics.
