a cloth woven of two or more threads interlaced to suggest the weave of a 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.
A simple flat fabric, which gives the appearance of a woven basket (tweed, twill or satin).
Variation on the basic plain weave. The basket weave uses two or more yarns going both ways, instead of one yarn as a plain weave. Oxford shirting is a good example.
This term is used to describe a simple weave using two or more warp ends and picks woven parallel to each other as one, in a plain or tabby weave formation. See weaves.

A variation of a plain weave in which two or more yarns weave alike in both the warp (vertical) and filling (horizontal) directions. The name probably derives from the similarity to basket work structure. The weaves produces a rather LOOSE construction.
A variation of the plain weave in which two or more warp and filling threads are woven side to side to resemble a plaited basket.
Paper with a weave effect finish traditionally used for heavyweight manilla papers.
