What is "Woven" - Definition & Explanation

Woven fabrics are produced by the interlacing of yarns. Each filling yarn goes alternately over and under each warp yarn.
A fabric composed of two sets of yarns and formed by weaving, which is the interlacing of these sets. By using various combinations of the three basic weaves (plain, twill and satin), it is possible to produce an almost unlimited variety of constructions.
A woven is a cloth formed by weaving. It only stretches in the bias directions (between the warp and weft directions), unless the threads are elastic. Woven cloth usually frays at the edges, unless measures are taken to counter this, such as the use of pinking shears or hemming.Most cloth in use is woven.
Made or constructed by interlacing threads or strips of material or other elements into a whole; "woven fabrics"; "woven baskets"; "the incidents woven into the story"; "folk songs woven into a symphony"
