(Glossary Term)

Any sheer textile with an open structure is often called gauze, but in the sense used in this book, gauze refers to a specific type of weave that involves the crossing and intercrossing of the warps. Typically, gauze is derived from plain weave. The warp crossings create small openings in the ground weave, and patterns can be made by juxtaposing the ground weave and the gauze areas
