Weaving is the production of fabric by interlacing two sets of yarns so that they cross each other, normally at right angles, usually using a hand or power-operated loom. It is the process of combining warp and weft components to make a woven structure.

Most yarns can be used for either warp or welf, although stronger yarns tend to be prefered for the warp like cotton, hemp or linen.
