New Ornament Notation for Woven Fabrics
Keywords:monotranslational ornament, ditranslational ornament, symmetry groups, symmetry axes and centres.
In spite of the fact that woven ornaments conform to symmetry concepts, in whose classification was proposed by
Woods and then improved by Hann, three main distinctions from the general system can be observed – ornaments of the
general system have continuous lines, whereas the line of a non-Jacquard woven ornament is a stepped line. Therefore
axes or centres can be laid both between threads and on a thread. The backgrounds of a new notation system for non-
Jacquard woven ornaments are presented in this article.
