I simply explain a fabric as it is composed to better understand its characteristics.
Plot and Order are the essential elements.
The weave consists of horizontal threads that in a fabric range from selvage to selvedge and intersect with the warp that develops longitudinally and determines the width according to the number of threads and the length based on its length.
Now you can better understand the fact that Taffetas is characterized by a higher warp density than the weft. It is a silk fabric, with an almost rigid structure, very shiny and luminous, rustling at every movement, very light and shiny.
It is beautiful monochromatic but when you will notice many wonderful reflections it will be because it is structured in a polychromatic way, obtained by using yarns of different colors in the weft and in the warp.
The classic is in silk, satin, chiffon, muslin but also exists in artificial and synthetic fibers (nylon, polyester, viscose)
