Fabric weaving technique could be described as the intersection of two yarn systems at a right angle, their interlacing, and finally composing a texture.

After the warp beam is placed on the weaving loom, it is put into some stages to make it smooth and easily touchable. A certain number of warp yarns are placed on a parallel base beside each other. The weft yarns are interlaced with the warp layer, which should be proceeded in the direction of the weaving activity, and they are combined with the fabric. These basic processes are repeated.

What constitutes a fabric are the warp and weft yarns; the warp yarns form a right angle with weft yarns. These two yarn systems form the fabric texture.  
Weft is the horizontal yarn system that forms the fabric. Warp yarns are placed on the shuttle by winding it around the hand bobbin from the bobbin.

On hand looms, when the shuttle is on the left, the left pedal is stepped when plain fabric weaving is concerned. The shuttle is passed between the two warp yarns to the right, weaver pulls the slay with the left hand towards her/himself to enable the yarns to interlace tightly, then the right foot steps on the pedal; the shuttle is passed to the left, and the weaving continues in this way.

The woven products are taken out of the loom, their tassels are knitted, and then the dying process is made.
After the dying, the product is ironed when it is humid, and now it is ready.
