MAGIC OF COLOR AND WEAVE
In woven designs from colored threads, a coloredpattern is a consequence of two possible arrangements where warp is over the weft or vice versa. Thus the primary elements of woven fabric design are combination of weaves and blending of colors using such weaves.
Color is differently related to effects of weave and form.
Color and ornamentation in woven fabrics is imparted through the pre-determined placement and interlacing of particular sequences of yarns. A solid color is produced by employing the same color in warp and weft. On the other hand, different colors may be combined to produce either a mixed or intermingled color effect in which the composite hue appears as a solid color.
COLOUR VISUALISATION IN WOVEN FABRICS
In woven fabrics, which are highly textured, various patterns become visible through their different structures. The colour of such patterns also depends upon the colour of the yarns involved, their combinations and different structures on the pattern surface.
