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.
