Basic Elements of a Woven Design

There are three basic elements in a woven design. They are:
  1. Design.
  2. Drafting plan.
  3. Lifting plan.
Design: The design indicates the interlacement of warp and weft threads in the repeat of the design. It is made up of a number of squares which constitute the repeat size of a design. The vertical direction of the squares indicates the picks and the horizontal direction indicates the ends.
Drafting plan: The drafting plan indicates the manner of drawing the ends through the heald eyes and it also denotes the number of heald shaft required for a given weave repeat.
Lifting plan: The lifting plan provides useful information to the weaver. It denotes the order of lifting of heald shafts.
