Snap weaving is a different traditional type of shuttle weaving, and it is woven with the rag-foot technique. This weaving is called çulfalık among the people. (floor bench) applied on the machines. Traditional hand weaving (rug) It is also important in terms of putting the modern life into practice and the evaluation of yarn and fabric scraps.
snap weaving, It is woven from weaving weaves in the rag foot technique. It is the oldest and most used, robust and small-reported weaving weave. Weaving is created by passing the weft threads from one bottom to the other between the warp threads. If the pattern is obtained with horizontal threads (weft), weft; If it is obtained with vertical threads (warp), it is called warp-faced weaving.
Combed fabrics to be used in weaving are selected according to color harmony. Strips cut from 3-5 cm are properly wrapped around the shuttle. It is important that the tip of the rope is cut obliquely to prevent the formation of potholes on the weaving edge.
Snap Weaving Technique
The pattern threads (weft) are woven 4-5 cm flat according to the model in the ragweed technique. Considering the color harmony of the threads or fabric strips in our hands, weaving is continued in this way at different intervals. If we want to place fringe threads between the models, thread in strips of 5-10 cm These strips are thrown between the warps in the form of carpet weaving loops according to the model. The cloth foot is woven 4-5 more rows according to the model. These processes can also be woven in different patterns by embossing (pulling) the weft threads as seen in the figure below. is compressed.

The weft yarns used face very little tension during the weaving process.
In addition, yarn thicknesses and structures can be variable, as the comb teeth and strength do not pass through their gaps. It is usually woven with combed yarns from leftover yarns or fabric edges. Therefore, it is mostly durable and flexible. (Cotton yarn, Effect twisted yarns)
