Crepe weave
The crepe weave is a binding type which is based on the plain weave. Spurious crepe, such as sand crepe is made by this special type of binding. Real crepe fabrics include qualities such as Crêpe de chine or Chiffon. During the production process, twisted yarns are woven in atlas / satin weave. This creates the characteristical sand-like surface of the fabric. Neither vertical nor horizontal stripes may occur during the production. This lends the fabric its irregular strucure, which makes it similar to real crepe fabrics.
