The weft thread is used to weave between the warp threads horizontally and is used to create horizontal patterns in the weave by varying color and thickness.

The weft is the second basic component in weaving which turns yarns into fabric. The weft is the yarn placed between warp yarns. The simplest structure is called plain weave or tabby where alternating odd and even warp threads are lifted so that the weft goes over one under one

When braiding on the Taka-dai, OCTO Plate and Square Plate, warp threads lay at an oblique angle. There is no separate weft thread, each warp will become a weft thread during the braiding process and interlace through the structure.
