African Weaving is simple in nature but unique and complex in design and technic, it involves the regular interlacing of two sets of threads to create a textile. One set of threads (known as the warp) is fixed to the frame, while the second set (the weft) is manipulated in between one or more warps in an under/over fashion and style.
Weaving is a method of textile production in which two distinct sets of yarns or threads are interlaced at right angles to form a fabric or cloth. Other methods are knitting, crocheting, felting, and braiding or plaiting. The way the warp and filling threads interlace with each other is called the Weave.
