"T" is for Taquete

"T" is for Taquete

According to the book Weft-Faced Pattern Weaves, Tabby to Taquete by Nancy Arthur Hoskins, weavers of the Near East and of Coptic Egypt in the 2nd century-7th century A.D. wove two and three-color weft-faced patterned taquete textiles.

Taquete is also known as weft-faced summer and winter weave, weft-faced polychrome summer and winter without tabby, and weft-faced two-tie unit weave.

Items from rugs to fine thread clothing can be woven with this structure.
