Using 2 shuttles – and two colours – in weft can transform designs.

You can weave the stripey purple and white fabric on a rigid heddle loom as it uses plainweave.  This and all the other designs are possible on 4 shaft looms except the fabric with red and purple squares on – which requires 8 shafts.

Design principle:  When the structure of the weave interacts with colour to produce a striking design this is known as “colour-and-weave” effects in weaving.  The most popular is dog-tooth check but there are many  more.  The effect in the first photo is known as “log cabin”.
