Though the finished effect resembles a woven cloth, the term “plaited “ is used as opposed to “woven”. In fabric making, the warp is stretched on a frame and remain stable, with the weft as the moving element. In plaiting, both parts are moving together, as in making a hair braid. This technique has much structural plasticity, so a lot of forms are possible.
Like weaving, plaited patterns are created according to the interlacing pattern ( plain, twill, herringbone), coloured materials provide another dimension.
