See also:day the same principle of
See also:weaving is applied, and the name dice is given to all figures of rectangular form . The different effects in the adjacent squares or rectangles are due to precisely the same reasons as those explained in connexion with the ground and the figure of damasks . The same weaves are used in both damasks and dices, but simpler weaves are generally employed for the commoner classes of the latter . The effect is, in every case, obtained by what are technic-ally called warp and weft

This class of pattern is largely employed for theproduction of table-cloths of
