weave types means: There are many ways to make fabric from yarns that have been woven on the loom. The warp or lengthwise yarns go first on the loom, while the crosswise yarns (also known as filling yarns) are interlaced with them. Three basic weaves are available: Plain weave, Twill weave and Satin weave. Plain weave is where the yarns of one row cross one another. The weft passes under the first warp and then over to the second. This is the second row. This is the most basic weave. Many fabrics are possible by changing the yarns used and their sizes. A variation on the basic weave known as the basket weave is when several rows are made up of weft yarns crossing over many rows of warp yarns. The twill weave is where weft yarns are interlaced with warp yarns following a specific pattern. On the fabric’s surface, there is a diagonal line known as a “wale”. Weft yarns are sprayed over and interlaced with warp yarns. The characteristic sheen that satin fabrics have is created by using loosely twist filament fibers of high luster. Combinations of basic weaves are used to create intricate patterns on special looms such as the jacquard or dobby. (in Fashion Dictionary)
