Woven fabric

Woven fabric is a textile formed by weaving. It is produced on a loom, and made of many threads woven on a warp and a weft.

Qualities

Woven fabric only stretches diagonally on the bias directions (between the warp and weft directions), unless the threads used are elastic.

Woven fabric cloth usually frays at the edges, unless techniques are used to counter it, such as the use of pinking shears or hemming.
