Classification of fabric according to their structures
- Simple Structure
In simple structure ends and picks are inserted on one another at right angle cloth respectively and parallel with each other. In this, there is only one series of ends and picks. They are responsible for the performance of the fabric.
- Compound Structure
In compound structure there are more than one series of picks and ends. From ends and picks, some of them are responsible for body of fabric and some of them will be responsible for special effect on the body of the cloth.
E.g. Piled fabric (Tarry fabric), canvas fabric, and velvet fabric.
