Interlacement occurs at the Point of Braiding where the various braiding strands come together to form the braid.

 Note the picture to the left of the interlacement on a marudai.

When braiding on the taka-dai, baby-taka-dai, octo and square plates, interlacement occurs when the yarn is moved through a group of yarns by going over and under them; over one, under one, (1-1) over two, under two,  (2-2).

Oblique interlacement is the product of braiding on the taka-dai, baby taka-dai, square or octo plates
