TWO IN ONE TIE & DYE FABRIC

T S N REDDI, WEAVERS’ SERVICE CENTRE, HYDERABAD.

Most of the single series of warp and weft fabrics are woven with plain and structural designs. If the designs are woven structural designs , one side warp design will be prominent and the other side will be weft. But the basic design will be the same. In double series of warp/weft fabrics also the basic design will be the same on the both side of the fabric.
