The purpose of these Hand Books is to bring the Various Branches of the Textile Industry conveniently arranged before the reader so that he may consult whatever subject of the Industry he is more particularly interested in. The present Volume of this Series of Hand Books, the Dictionary of Weaves, Part 1, covers a collection of all the Weaves for Four, Five. Six. Seven, Eight and Nine Harness. In designing these weaves, stress has been laid on selecting such weaves as will be of practical value. The various repeats of this collection of weaves have been kept separate as much as possible the repeat of the warp-threads. Many of the earliest books on weaving, textiles and needlework, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.

A History of Textiles and Weaving
A textile or cloth is a flexible woven material consisting of a network of natural or artificial fibres, often referred to as thread or yarn . Yarn is produced by spinning raw fibres of wool, flax, cotton, or other material to produce long strands. Textiles are then in turn, formed by weaving, knitting, crocheting, knotting, or pressing fibres together (felt). The words fabric and cloth are used in textile assembly trades (such as tailoring and dressmaking) as synonyms for textile . However, there are subtle differences in these terms in specialized usage. Textile refers to any material made of interlacing fibres. Fabric refers to any material made through weaving, knitting, spreading, crocheting, or bonding that may be used in production of further goods (garments, etc.). And finally, Cloth may be used synonymously with fabric but often refers to a finished piece of fabric used for a specific purpose (e.g., table cloth ).
The word textile comes from Latin, textilis , meaning woven (from textus , the past participle of the verb texere , to weave ). From ancient origins, the production of textiles has altered almost beyond recognition however. Industrialisation and the introduction of modern manufacturing techniques have changed both the working methods - speed and scale, and the end product itself. For some types of textiles though; plain weave, twill, or satin weave, there is little difference between the ancient and modern methods. Textile production has been evidenced as early as Neolithic times. In 2013, linen cloth was found at the atalh y k site (Turkey), dated at around 700 BCE. Another fragment has been found in Fayum (a city in middle Egypt), dated to about 5000 BCE. Flax was the predominant fibre in Egypt at this time (3600 BCE), hugely popular in the Nile Valley, though wool became the primary fibre used in other cultures around 2000 BCE.
