[BKARTS] plain weave



Plain weave typically is a textile that's woven over one, under one, --as
opposed to a twill (where the weft typically goes over or under 2 or more
warp threads), huck, etc.  Sheets are most often woven in plain weave
whereas jeans (for example) are woven in a kind of twill.
