Being a fabric lover, I couldn’t resist showing how many different structures there can be in a piece of silk. . . on the surface, as the surface, and within the fabric’s surface.
showing the reverse side allows the eye to focus on how this has been woven – the groups of threads plied together into single larger thread which has been used to weave the cloth.
the entire fabric is shown hanging from a shower rail. the pattern is repeated – the repetition being every x number of inches. can your eye begin to see the structure in the print?
looking closely you can see additional structure in the weave (warp & weft) of the silk fibres. all those nice squares!
Many more structures visible in this gladiola!
