What is woven fabric?

Woven Fabric

Woven fabric is made on a loom with threads crossing over and under each other to form fabric. The warp threads go up and down, while the weft threads go from side to side. The content of the thread and the variation of the weave is what creates different types of woven fabric. Woven fabrics usually have more stability and less stretch.
