The production technique of weaving is understood as the crossing of a longitudinal and a transverse thread system. These two thread systems are also called warp and weft threads. The warp threads run in the longitudinal direction, the weft threads in the transverse direction. Since the warp threads are heavily used during weaving, they are usually stronger than the weft threads.


The braiding production technique is understood to mean sinusoidally moving, crossed braiding threads, which form the braid in the so-called braiding point. You can imagine it like the dance around the maypole. Braids can be divided into round and flat braids. Round braids are z. B. hoses, cords and cords, flat braids are also called braids, for example.
