To increase the strength and prevent loose fiber ends, twist is added to the warp and weft threads while spraying them with mist. This process requires skill. If the twist is not enough, the threads develop loose ends making it difficult to weave, but if the twist is too strong, the kasuri pattern becomes hard to match and the texture will not be pleasant.
