What is "Basket Weave" - Definition & Explanation

A textile weave consisting of double threads interlaced to produce a checkered pattern similar to that of a woven basket.
A variation of the plain weave construction, formed by treating two or more warp yarns and/or two or more filling yarns as one unit in the weaving process. Yarns in a basket weave are laid into the woven construction flat, and maintain a parallel relationship. Both balanced and unbalanced basket weave fabrics can be produced. Examples of basket weave construction includes monk cloth and oxford cloth.
A textile weave consisting of double threads interlaced to produce a checkered pattern similar to that of a woven basket. Also called hopsack or matt weave. The weave is 2/2.

A variation of the plain weave in which two or more threads weave alike in both warp (down) and filling (across) directions, joined in the regular order of the plain weave. So named for the basket-like pattern of the weave.

A variation of the plain weave in which two or more warp and filling threads are woven side by side to resemble a plaited basket. Fabrics have a loose construction and a flat appearance and are used for such things as monk's cloth and drapery fabrics.
