What is "Leno" - Definition & Explanation

It is a net like fabric constructed by causing a warp end to cross over another end. This is made possible by the use of doup healds.
Refers to an open weave fabric. In a leno weave the warp yarns are arranged in pairs, twisting or interlocking around the filling yarn to prevent slippage and make the open weave stronger and more firm.
An open, lacy weave in which the filling yarn is woven through figure eights made out of warp fibers; gauze.
A fabric made with leno weave, namely an open weave in which pairs of warp yarns cross one another and thereby lock the filling yarn in position.
